Vegan Mania Time is Here

Chicago VeganMania, now in its sixth year, is the ultimate celebration of Chicago’s vibrant vegan community, culture, businesses and food, held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., October 11, at the Broadway Armory. At its center is a 22,000-square-foot exhibit hall that houses a massive food court featuring 15 of Chicago’s finest vegan and vegan-friendly establishments, as well as dozens of exhibiting vendors showing off vegan fashion, jewelry, bodycare, products for the home, free food samples and more.

There are also stages in four separate rooms featuring demonstrations by some of Chicago’s favorite chefs, presentations from leading speakers, workshops and panel discussions and live music on the Culture Café stage. In addition, there will be a mini-spa with massages, Reiki and other natural treatments, plus a lively kids’ area with a mini-playground and virtual animal sanctuary, informative Ask-A-Vegan-Expert tables and a Vegan Rockstar photo booth.

Admission is free and donations are appreciated. Location: 5917 N. Broadway, Chicago. The Broadway Armory is easily accessible via the Thorndale stop of the Red Line. For more information, visit
