Corpus Christi VegFest returns to downtown this weekend.
The annual festival, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 8 at Heritage Park, 1581 N. Chaparral St., will feature food vendors, cooking demos and merchandise vendors from companies based in Texas. Live music and speakers from across the country will take place throughout the event. Entrance is free, but food and merchandise prices will vary.
The all-vegan festival celebrates a plant-based diet and lifestyle with 24 vendors including Corpus Christi locals Tula Blue, Lemon Shakers and McNabb Microfarm. Attendees can eat everything from tamales and burgers to pastries and kettle corn — all made from 100% plants.
Other vendors will offer vegan goods like Poppin Natural’s skincare products and Positively Packaged’s clothing line.
Plant-based chef Eddie Garza will be back again to speak about veganism. With so many tasty and fun options, the festival appeals to vegans and omnivores alike.
