The fourth annual event celebrates the best and brightest vegan fare in Chicago in an action-packed new venue.


Chicago VeganMania, a free one-day event celebrating the dynamic vegan community in the Chicago area, returns for a fourth year in its new location at Broadway Armory. The 22,000 square-foot space will house a vegan food court hosting more than a dozen restaurant vendors including The Chicago Diner, Native Foods Café, and Soul Vegan, among others; a workshop room featuring college-type classes such as Veganism 101 and Creative Activism; and the ever-popular Culture Café, a miniature coffee-house with music and drinks. The venue will also showcase demos from popular vegan chefs such as Native Foods Café’s Kendall Huff and author Miyoko Schinner, as well as host an activity-packed kids zone, bookstore, photo booth, graffiti wall, and more. The celebration takes place Saturday, September 29 from 10am to 5pm.
