Burnett Woods Park (Burnett Woods Drive off of Clifton Avenue)
Cincinnati, OH 45220
Price: Free

On May 18, VegFest returns to Cincinnati for the first time since 2012, for what organizers are planning as an annual local event. This year's Cincy VegFest will take place at the Burnet Woods Bandstand in Clifton and run from 11 a.m.-8 p.m. There is no admission charge.

On its website, Cincy VegFest is described as "a variety of talks, classes, and workshops with national and internationally known presenters, musicians, authors, artists, and chefs unfolding a path to a more peaceful world through compassionate plant-sourced vegan living." Several vendors will offer "plant-sourced meal choices" for attendees and the day will be filled with live music from artists like Indie Folk singer/songwriter Nicholas Penn, World/Folk/Rock ensemble HuDost, Cincinnati duo Ancient News (featuring Andrea Cefalo and David Kisor) and others, as well as various other attractions (including kid-friendly ones).

Yogis and environmentalists will also be on hand for Cincy VegFest, as will several chefs, including Cincinnati’s Danny Korman, former owner of Park + Vine.

The event has been held for the past five years in Cleveland; in 2018, it attracted more than 13,000 attendees, according to a press release. Cleveland's 2019 VegFest will also be held May 18. The first VegFest in Cincinnati in 2012 was held in conjunction with the University of Cincinnati. 

Below is the full list of exhibitors so far for Cincy VegFest 2019. Visit cincyvegfest.com for complete info.
