"We had a great day and did great sales. We weren't sure what to expect with it being a first time event but did as well or close to as well as we do at events like Texas State Veggie Fair, DC VegFest, and so forth, which are long running events. So, great job for a first year! We will definitely be back!" - Josh, The Herbivore Clothing Company
"I thought the event was extremely well organized and probably the best attended in last couple of years I've been doing this. Too many attendees to count and we had a line waiting to talk to us. Excellent organization and traffic, loved it and definitely want to be a part of this next year!" - Marilyn, Young Living Essential Oil

"It was a great event! We had quite a few visitors and raised a lot of money despite not being able to bring in our dogs for adoption. At the end of the festival, there were still hundreds of people. We are very satisfied with our experience!" - Paige, Barks of Love, Non-Profit
"The vegfest was fabulous. We had people come by non-stop all day long. We loved the venue; outside on grass with cement walkways, no dust. It was just the right size, lots of great food vendors. The volunteers were amazingly helpful. They helped us set up our tent and take it down again. The college was easy to find; right off the freeway and parking was easy. This was absolutely the best vegan fest ever. The atmosphere was so positive all over. I can't thank you enough for letting us be a part of it." - Britt, People for Reason in Science and Medicine, Non-Profit Exhibitor
"This event was well planned, very organized, fun and brought an incredible turnout. I had excellent placement at the festival and feel very happy and satisfied in being a part of it. 🙂 I'll be back next year for sure!" - Paris, Sign Up For Love, Non-Profit Exhibitor
