Chicago Veggie Pride Parade in Grant Park

The second annual Chicago Veggie Pride Parade, celebrating vegetarian and vegan lifestyles, will take place June 1 in Grant Park. Speakers will be complemented by a costume contest and tons of fun.

Vegans, vegetarians and anyone interested in a plant-based diet is welcome to participate, whether their choices are based on ethical, environmental, health or spiritual reasons. The mission of the parade is to unify the voices of everyone that sees the advantages of a plant-based diet and wishes to share and promote it.

The Chicago Veggie Pride Parade is planned and staffed by volunteers from ChicagoVeg—a community for Chicagoland vegetarians, vegans, raw foodists and their friends, and a number of local vegan and animal rights activists.
