Our mission

Santa Cruz VegFest is dedicated to bringing awareness to the benefits of a vegan lifestyle and helping support people in their transition toward making healthier, more sustainable, and compassionate choices.


Santa Cruz VegFest is under the umbrella of Vegan Outreach, a 501c3 non-profit organization.


Our purpose is to:

  • Build, support, and maintain an inclusive community that welcomes all

  • Create engaging community events that are low-cost or free

  • Connect and network in the larger community; solidarity needs to extend across causes and organizations in order to truly bring about a more just and sustainable world

  • Provide vegan and plant-based education and outreach

  • Provide expertise and serve as a resource to the community on vegan and plant-based issues

  • Model a responsible, effective, and transparent organization

  • Create positive change and make the world a better place

VegFest is Made Possible by our Volunteers and Donors!

Santa Cruz VegFest is a 100% volunteer-run organization. Our events and outreach are made possible by the generosity of our volunteers, sponsors, and donors.
