Portland, OR’s Try Vegan Week to Begin Saturday

The vegan-friendly city’s fifth annual vegan-awareness week will offer food, speakers, and fun.

Home to vegan food trucks, a grocery store, and even a tattoo parlor, Portland, OR is one of the country’s most vegan-friendly cities. Starting this Saturday, August 4, the City of Roses will host its fifth annual Try Vegan Week. Hosted by local group Try Vegan PDX, the weeklong event will include workshops on topics such as raw vegan food, dine-outs at vegan restaurants, and more, culminating in a vegan prom on Saturday, August 11. Portland was also home to last year’s first Vida Vegan Con blogger conference.
