VegEvents was created to help support people on their vegan journey. We believe the way to do that is by helping people find vegan events virtually or near them where they can connect with others on a similar journey.
When we first went vegan several years ago we knew that we would need to find other vegans in order to get support along the way and stick with it. So we started looking for every vegan event we could find. We found local vegan festivals, vegan potlucks, and restaurant meetups where people only ordered the vegan items on the menu. We met great people and made great friends. And we thrived.
We started meeting people who were vegan or interested in going vegan but didn’t know any other vegans. And they didn’t know about the vegan events near them. They didn’t know about the vegan potluck hosted every month in their neighborhood, or the yearly vegan festival right down the street. They didn’t know about all of the great new friends just waiting to meet them. So we decided to create a place where people can easily find vegan events near them without having to hunt around places like Meetup.com or Facebook.
Our goal is to put all vegan events in one place and make it so easy to find a vegan event that people are already on their way to one before they can change their mind.
Vegan Event Policy
We try to ensure that all events are vegan. Exceptions to this policy are dating events, some conferences, and some VegFests. Some of these are hard to figure out if they are vegan, and in the case of dating events they are so rare that they usually allow vegetarians and vegans to attend. We will tag events as Vegetarian when they are clearly not vegan.
We automatically import events from Meetup.com groups, Eventbrite profiles, and iCal feeds that host vegan events.
Contact us if we aren’t already importing your events. And we can set it up to import your events automatically once a week, depending on how often you post new events.
Or you can use the Submit an Event page and we will review your submission within 72 hours.
Updating or Reporting Events
We automatically import events from many groups, but if an event is updated we don’t pull in the latest changes. And sometimes a non-vegan event might slip through our review process.
Please use the “Report or Update Event” link on the event’s VegEvents listing to contact us with updated details or to let us know if an event is not vegan. You can find the link to the right of the “Event Description” heading on each event page.
