Ticketing is now closed.
Start the VegFest celebration early with a special ticketed dinner on Friday, September 15, 2017. We’ll begin the evening in the big tent at Martin Luther King Jr. Park at 5:00 pm, when you can view and bid on all of our Silent Auction items, including a Ramon Santiago print, a beautiful handmade metalwork sign by local artist, John Greico, and gift certificates to some of Rochester’s best places! Dinner will be at 6:00, created by the talented folks at The Red Fern, and finished with dessert by Happy Cakes. At 7:00, we will screen “Speciesism: The Movie”, followed by a talk by the movie’s producer and director, Mark Devries. Tickets are very limited, and can be purchased for $40 below, with proceeds going to help defray the cost of bringing some of the vegan community’s best speakers to Rochester VegFest – and many of those speakers will be at the dinner on Friday night!
