Wilmington Vegfest will return to Legion Sports Complex on April 21.

On Sunday, April 21, the community will come together at the Backfield at Legion Sports Complex for Wilmington Vegfest. The goal of the event is to educate the public about the benefits of adopting plant-based choices and to promote vegan-friendly businesses and organizations’ resources in the Wilmington area and beyond.

Festival-goers will have the opportunity to enjoy plant-based culinary delights, samples and giveaways from vendors such as Gold Potato Sponsor, Superieur Electrolytes, Oh My Cod Vegan Seafood from Florida and RiCoQui Plant-Based Street Food from Charlotte, who will be at Wilmington Earth Day on Saturday and Vegfest on Sunday. More than 40 vendors will bring a variety of animal-friendly wellness and beauty products, apparel, health services, educational resources and more.

Presenting the festival again this year is Blueberry Lane Farm Animal Sanctuary. A percentage of sales will be donated back to the sanctuary in honor of their late founder, Debbie Davis.

“Wilmington is a favorite city for us to host our festivals,” Helene Greenberg, executive director of Triangle Vegfest says. “We love bringing the festival to the community and being able to reach more people year after year.”

This year Wilmington Vegfest is joining forces again with Wilmington Earth Day Festival. Their event is on Saturday, April 20 at Longleaf Park from 12 to 6 pm, making it a perfect weekend to come to Wilmington and check out both events.
