Vegandale Fest Miami 2022
North America's fastest-growing vegan festival “Vegandale fest” had its first annual edition in Miami, Florida last May 21st, 2022, at the historic Virginia Key Beach Park.
The festival was a unique event and we want to share our experience with you!
How it started?
“It all started with one collective of vegan businesses in the Toronto neighborhood of Parkdale – coined Vegandale. We couldn’t contain this premiere destination for the vegan and vegan-curious in just one city block. So we pack up our vegan experiences and join forces with like-minded vendors and sponsors to promote a world where animal exploitation is a thing of the past.”
The organizers run the festival now in 5 cities:
DALLAS • MIAMI • LOS ANGELES • NEW YORK • TORONTO • CHICAGO
We at Killer Coffee were immediately thrilled to be part of the Vegandale festival and we knew that it was a perfect event for us, where specialty coffee and non-dairy beverages could not be missing.
Looking at the previous editions, we were pumped to participate in this event that promotes eating in a conscientious way, while offering good music and art, and of course, food delights and beverages.
With over 10,000 attendees and nearly 100 vendors, 25 coming from as far as California, Oregon, the Philippines, and beyond, this vegan festival was full of good vibes and exciting innovative foods.
The festival featured everything from plant-based burgers to ice cream, cheese—all of which were made from ingredients like nuts and seeds instead of animal products—. The festival also included several cooking innovations and brands focusing on veganism in general.
The entrance tickets (yes, you have to buy one) range from $5 as an early bird, $10, $15, and $20 on the same day of the event. The festival runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Live music and DJ, contests and art installations are part of the fun at this event.
