I bet you thought we couldn’t cram anything more into those SWAG bags but our donation coordinator Martha was undaunted by the challenge. The remaining bags of marshmallows will be handed out as prizes around the festival, so try out the Feed-a-Vegan beanbag toss or check out the games at the new Teen Tent!
Thank you to our in-kind sponsor Hurraw! Balms for their generous donation to our SWAG bags! Hurraw’s philosophy is simple: “Let’s put the concept ahead of the profit, the user ahead of the maker, the collective ahead of the individual.”
Thank you to our in-kind sponsor Orgain for sending us packets of their vegan protein powder to include in our stuffed SWAG bags!
We’re delighted to announce that our latest in-kind sponsor, Foods Alive, has donated some delicious samples of crackers AND organic and gluten-free nutritional yeast—a virtual “superfood” to us vegans! Of course, we’re excited to hand them out at the Rochester VegFest this year! Keep an eye out for them in the SWAG bags available to the first 100 people to give a $3 or more entry donation.
Thank you to Simple Mills for donating crackers to our SWAG Bags! These crackers, like all their products, will be made only with real-food ingredients – nothing artificial.
How do you get a SWAG bag? The first 100 people to donate $3 or more entering VegFest will receive a free SWAG bag valued at $11.50 so far, and a raffle ticket worth $3.
Thank you to Nature’s Path for donating chips to our SWAG Bags!
Nature’s Path doesn’t just make organic products, they were the first USDA certified organic cereals on the market and since then they have made organic advocacy a priority.
We packed the SWAG bags Monday, filled with goodies from sponsors and donors!

We are so grateful for these donors for helping make VegFest awesome – and thank you to volunteers Bubbie, Kim, Jessica, Darren, and Tina for putting together the bags!
Be one of the first 100 attendees to donate $3 or more at the festival, and you’ll receive a free SWAG bag in addition to your free raffle ticket!
