Vendor Packet

Dear Friend,

It’s time to give Central Florida the Veg Fest celebration it deserves! On Saturday, October 28, 2023, the 18th annual Central Florida Veg Fest will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and we invite you to be considered for participation! It will happen at beautiful Orlando Festival Park near downtown Orlando. The event will be promoted in magazines, newspapers, TV, radio, websites, email groups, social networking sites, and on flyers around town. The Central Florida Veg Fest Info Guide will be printed in the Orlando Weekly on October 25, 2023. Central Florida Veg Fest is organized by Vegetarians of Central Florida, Inc. (, a nonprofit, volunteer-run organization whose goal is to support and encourage vegetarians and vegans in Central Florida.

The event will include healthy living and eco-friendly exhibitors, speakers, and presentations; non-profits; fun and games for kids; dog and cat adoptions; restaurant booths; environmental and humane education, and live music and entertainment. Central Florida Veg Fest will draw both committed vegans and those who want to learn more about how to protect our health, the planet, and its inhabitants. You can promote your business or group to thousands of people who want to learn more about veganism and the varied products and services that support a veg-friendly and eco-friendly way of life. All money raised will be used for local vegan education and outreach.

The first Central Florida Veg Fest took place at Lake Lily in Maitland in October 2005. The second through sixth took place at Loch Haven Park. This is the twelfth year at Orlando Festival Park. Veg Fest is back—bigger and better than ever! Central Florida Veg Fest is now widely considered one of the best vegan festivals in the country! Vegetarians of Central Florida also organizes Central Florida Earth Day, the largest and most prestigious Earth Day event in Central Florida. The 18th annual Earth Day ( took place at Lake Eola Park in April 2023, and the next one will happen there in April 2024.
