The 14th annual Veggie Fest Chicago, one of the largest and most celebrated vegetarian food and wellness festivals in North America, will be held from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., August 10 and 11 at Danada South Park, in Lisle. Admission and parking are free.

This popular family-friendly festival, featuring fun activities for everyone, always attracts a huge crowd. In 2019, more than 50,000 people attended, and event organizers are expecting another year of record-breaking attendance.

Festival-goers will have the opportunity to enjoy delicious food at the international food court; live music from some of the best bands in the Chicagoland area; vegetarian food demonstrations from chefs around the country; internationally recognized expert speakers on the health benefits of a plant-based diet; an interactive children’s tent; yoga and meditation tents; and 100-plus vendors promoting healthy living.

Veggie Fest Chicago is a nonprofit festival supported by more than 1,000 volunteers from more than 20 countries. It has become one of the most highly anticipated summer festivals in the area, and The Chicago Tribune has said it’s one of the best run festivals in Chicagoland.
