SLC VegFest is a family-friendly and free event where Utahns will learn how we can save up to 100 animals each year, significantly lessen our impact on the environment, and improve our overall health by simply leaving animal products off our plates.

The 6th annual SLC VegFest will be at Library Square on Saturday, September 10th, 2022. The event will feature delicious vegan food from local restaurants and bakeries, a kids area, and lively entertainment to create a fun and welcoming environment.

The festival brings together local businesses, nonprofits, and individuals committed to creating a more compassionate, sustainable, and healthy community.

SLC VegFest is organized by Utah Animal Rights Coalition (UARC), an all-volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in Salt Lake City.
