If the thought of a vegan diet conjures images of bland salads and flavors, then you haven’t experienced Vegan Street Fair! With over 90 of L.A.’s hottest vegan and non-vegan vendors on site, this new vegan food renaissance served up $3 max bite size portions of vegan and gluten-free specialties such as tamales, gumbo, sliders, cupcakes and ice cream.

Happy Elephant Vegan was a hit at Vegan Street Fair! Lines from opening to end, and what a wonder!

Vegans and foodies had a ball at 2016 Vegan Street Fair – not only did we eat, we also laughed, sang and danced!

Although entry to the event was free, VIP tickets were available for purchase for $40 – perfect for bypassing the long lines as a VIP Fast Pass. As an added bonus, VIP tickets grant access to VIP ticket booths and receive a strip of 12 tickets ($6 value).
