New York City gets a taste of the best vegan comfort foods from across North America

New York City gets a taste of the best vegan comfort foods from across North America at Third Annual Vegandale Festival


Over 100,000 attendees expected across Chicago, Miami, Toronto, New York & Houston

NEW YORK CITY, September 23, 2019 - North America’s fastest-growing vegan festival is bringing comfort food from across the continent to New York City on September 28th! For its fifth season, the vendor line up at Vegandale Festival is looking bigger and better than ever showcasing over 150 vendors. With iconic names like Snackrilige flying in from Oregon, Eat Love from California, and local favorites such as Berben and Wolff’s, this is a party you won’t want to miss.


Don’t expect salad at this festival! A few must-try items on the menu are:

  • Beer Cheeze Battered Beyond Burger (Southern Fried Vegan, California)

  • Fish and Chips (Oh My Cod, Florida)

  • Chikn Sando and Cajun Fries (Lettuce Fest, California)

  • Gourmet Cinnamon Rolls (Cinnaholic, New Jersey)

  • Southern Fried Chicknuns  (V-Eats, Texas)

Vegandale President, Hellenic Vincent De Paul, said: “People often think that veganism is a diet for white people eating only salads. We’re out to prove that Veganism is rooted in justice for animals and that you can still enjoy all of your favourite comfort foods without exploiting animals.

Fans are encouraged to follow the festival on Facebook and Instagram for event updates.

The event will take place on Saturday, September 28th at Randall’s Island Park from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tickets can be purchased from vegandalefest.com

About Vegandale

Vegandale is a mecca for the ethically minded and hungry, with the best of vegan food, goods, and services co-existing on one city block in downtown Toronto. This premier destination for the vegan and vegan-curious is the only one of its kind, promoting a world where animal exploitation is a thing of the past. With our roots in abolitionism, our unapologetic messaging is the connection between each project we touch. BUT... we can't contain all of that to just one city block, so we're packing up and taking over the world!
