What Is Vegtoria?

Vegtoria is an annual festival that celebrates veganism, cruelty-free living, compassion and the environment in one fun-filled day!

This day will be a celebration of vegan life with music, vendors, speakers, food and more!

Everyone is invited to join us and experience the values that we share as a community which celebrates the lives of non-human animals by not consuming them.

We want to acknowledge that we organize and practice our culture on unceeded Coast Salish Territory
