Event Description

For the first time, Vegan Restaurant Week will be launching in Southern Maryland during the week of November 2nd-9th, 2019. During this time, participating restaurants will feature a separate vegan menu (or vegan dish), specially created for this week-long community event. In addition to vegans, all diners are encouraged to enjoy a variety of plant-based menu items that support healthier diets, the environment, and compassion for all.

Late last year, The Economist declared that “2019 will be the year veganism goes mainstream.” With fast-food restaurants nationally debuting plant-based burgers and menu items, a plant-based burger company’s opening-day stock announcement reaching the highest gains in nearly two decades, and countless schools and hospitals adding vegan menus, The Economist was right. Vegan Restaurant Week is yet another example of embracing mainstream veganism, with local, Southern Maryland businesses at the forefront.

About Vegan Restaurant Week: Participating in the Southern Maryland Vegan Restaurant Week gives local restaurants the opportunity to further highlight their passion for creating unique and tasty menu items for all diners. As a result, this innovative and community-wide experience will continue to promote and provide awareness about the numerous benefits of plant-based eating. To coincide with World Vegan Day on November 1st, a launch party to kick-off Southern Maryland Vegan Restaurant Week is being planned to take place in St. Mary’s County. More details about the kick-off party and Vegan Restaurant Week will continue to be updated on the “SOMD Vegan Restaurant Week” Facebook page at
