Event description

Description

Purchasing this ticket grants you access to Ottawa Veg Fest on BOTH days of the event - Saturday June 2, and Sunday June 3. It is being offered as a convenience to those who would prefer to not worry about paying at the door. If you expect to come on one day, you should simply pay the $5 entry fee at the door on the day of your choice.

Ottawa Veg Fest returns for its 9th year! It's a celebration of everything related to being plant-powered! This event is the perfect place to come and support the fabulous vegan and vegan-friendly businesses and services in Ottawa and beyond, to sample delicious food, and to learn from a terrific roster of speakers and cooking pros.

We are pleased that The Table Vegetarian Restaurant is back this year as our Gold Sponsor and exhibitor.

Visit www.vegfestottawa.ca for a full list of exhibitors, and schedule for speakers and cooking demos. This year we are welcoming Canadian Olympic figure skating medallist Meagan Duhamel, former NHL star Georges Laraque, and video star The Buddhist Chef as our keynotes.

Special thanks to our additional sponsors: Rainbow Foods, Market Organics, Asian Stars Restaurant, GUSTA, Juicehead, Bryson Farms, National Capital Vegetarian Association and Richardo's.

FAQs

What's the refund policy?

Due to the low cost of tickets and expected volume of sales, we are not processing refunds for these tickets.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

It would be preferable, but having it up on your screen is also acceptable.

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

The weekend pass is intended for use by ONE individual on both days. It cannot be used by one person on Saturday, and another person on Sunday. If you cannot make the event at all, you may transfer the ticket by midnight Friday June 1 to another person.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

No.

Why is the pass not much cheaper than just paying $5 each day?

The pass is being offered as a convenience, for those who wish to purchase their tickets in advance and not worry so much about having cash at the door. Eventbrite charges nearly a dollar in fees for each ticket.

Is Ottawa Veg Fest a fully vegan event?

Ottawa Veg Fest exists to promote and celebrate exclusively vegan lifestyle, products and services. We do our very best to ensure that each and every participating exhibitor is aware of this, as well as what vegan means.

I’m not a vegan. Am I welcome at Ottawa Veg Fest?

Oh hell yeah you are! In fact, Ottawa Veg Fest is literally FOR you. Our mission is to educate and inspire people to try and move towards plant based and vegan alternatives, for whatever reason moves you. Even if you think, “omg I could never be a vegan,” we want you to come and let us at least show you how delicious and amazing our lifestyle is!

Will I leave Ottawa Veg Fest hungry?

This is wholly unlikely. If you are having trouble making a decisions and don’t know what to eat, please approach an event volunteer, or search #OttawaVegFest on Instagram for inspiration.

Will there be samples on Ottawa Veg Fest?

Yes! Many of our exhibitors will offer free samples. Even more will offer “small plates” so that you can try a variety of options.

What kind of payments do your exhibitors take?

Many of our exhibitors take Square (credit card) but some take only cash. There is an ATM at the RA Centre but in previous years it ran out of money because vegans are really good at spending money. There are also banks at the Billings Bridge Shopping Centre. We strongly recommend bringing a wad of cash if you expect to spend money.

Is there parking at the RA Centre?

Yes, and it’s free! We also encourage you to consider taking public transit (the Billings Bridge and Heron Transitway stops are a few hundred metres away) or cycling – it’s right on the Riverside bike paths! Also if you’re not totally sure how to find us, Siri can help too.

Is this RA Centre accessible?

Yes, it is. If you face any issues at all with accessibility please alert an event volunteer so that we can help you.

Why is there an admission fee this year?

Veg Fest was for many years a labour of love, but is now the actual job of its organizer (who co-organized it for free for four years)! An admission fee was required in order to ensure that the event is sustainable, and has someone to organize it. It’s a pile of work! And we think $5 is a pretty nominal fee.

Is there a charitable element to this event?

Yes - we anticipate raising several thousand dollars through Ottawa Veg Fest to support worthy charities/non-profits.
