The second annual San Diego Vegan Festival is a full-scale vegan festival produced by Vegan in San Diego, a San Diego-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. This event showcases the vegan lifestyle through food, drinks, goods, information, and more! Admission is free, open and inviting for vegans and vegan-curious folks alike. The 2024 San Diego Vegan Festival will be held on Saturday, April 13, 2024, at the County of San Diego Waterfront Park (1600 Pacific Highway, San Diego, CA 92101) from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. as a rain or shine event. This is two hours longer than our first annual event in 2023!

Our goal with this–and every–event is to offer a very affordable vendor fee to help our nonprofit cover fees associated with the venue, rentals, permits, etc. Expected attendance is currently 10,000 guests. Admission is free and there are several parking options nearby, with access to public transportation only one block away.
