Vida Vegan Con 2015 in Austin

28 May

If you are in Austin, TX or able to get there any time starting right now through this Sunday (5/28-5/31), you must check out some of the happenings surrounding the Vida Vegan Con 2015.

Thursday 5/28 from 3-6pm:  Unofficial (totally official) Meet & Greet at Buzzmill Coffee & Beer House

Friday 5/29 from Noon- 7pm:  Opening Day Vegan Bazaar at The Marchesa Hall & Theatre (open to the public)

For more information, follow Vida Vegan Con on social media. There will be vegan food trucks, tons of people in town, and even a scavenger hunt.

The official conference itself, which is being held at the AT&T Education & Conference Center – Vida Vegan Con III is sold out.

One of my favorite hometown plant based companies will be making their Austin debut at the conference and Vegan Bazaar. Mean Vegan out of Kansas City, MO loaded up a massive amount of tamales, and hit the road to Texas. Feud With Food had plans to be in attendance this year.  But some unfortunate autoimmune related flares surfaced this week, and the trip would prove to be too draining to attempt. I am quite sad to be missing this 3rd and final version of VVCIII.

I was in Portland during VVCII in 2013, and had a blast at the Vida Vegan Con Galarama at Staver Locomotives. A plethora of cheese plates courtesy of Miyoko, coupled with a build your own sundae bar from So Delicious made for a fantastic evening. And I topped it off with a root beer float, some dancing, and the photo booth.  I look forward to living vicariously through those lucky folks who are attending the VVCIII in Austin this year.  Please eat all of the cheese, and have so much fun FOR me.  And don’t forget to check out Mean Vegan at the Bazaar. They will have t-shirts for sale, too.

I want ALL of the vegan ice cream.  So Delicious made it easy with their sundae bar at VVCII in Portland.
