Get ready to completely veg out. Palm Beach VegFest is the brainchild of vegan yogis Courtney and Mike Mitchell. Launched in 2016, the nonprofit organization hosts free-admission vegan events in South Florida that offer sustainable plant-based food, a variety of vendors, and an education on the benefits of healthy eating. Upcoming VegFest events are scheduled for November 10 and January 19 at Meyer Amphitheater in West Palm Beach and December 14 and March 21 at Mizner Park Amphitheater in Boca Raton. For the uninitiated: Be prepared to redefine your preconception of vegan food. Check out these selections from participating food vendors that prove healthy indulgence is not an oxymoron.
