Every donation helps us meet our goals and provide the best vegan events in the city.


Without our volunteers we would not be able to provide Columbus Vegan Festival visitors the experience they have come to love. We need your help.


When you sponsor our event you allow us to enrich our community by providing space for speakers, presenters, and vegan businesses from all over the state. We also hand out goodie bags filled with information and sample products.

About the Columbus Vegan Festival

The Columbus Vegan Festival is a project by Vegan Shift, a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization connector hub empowering and advocating for a rapid world vegan shift in consciousness. The Columbus Vegan Festival is dedicated to demonstrating, environmental, and ethical benefits of 100% plant-based living. Our event includes healthy living, vegan and non-vegan allies, renowned chefs and speakers from around the country, presentations, cooking demonstrations, food trucks, area restaurants, non-profit organizations, author signings, kid’s activities and more. In 2016, we held the first community festival in Central Ohio with more than 1,000 attendees. We invite you to join us in discovering why so many people are making a vegan shift around the world and helping Columbus ensure more vegan options are more accessible, affordable and available to everyone, everywhere, everyday.
