Scruffy City VeganFest is to host a zero-waste vegan festival in Tennessee this month. 

Organized by Vegfest Expos and Triangle Vegfest, the event will feature more than 50 plant-based businesses such as food vendors and body artists in a bid ‘to promote the growing vegan scene in East Tennessee’. 

Guest speakers include Ronnie Tsunami, Troy Stratton, and Brittany. While singer Grey and Three Day Flight will also perform at the festival.

“We will be a ZERO WASTE event in 2019 with the help of sponsors. We encourage BYOB (Bring your own bags or bottles),” the event’s website states. “We will also have recycling for items that cannot compost. Free water will be available by our water sponsor, Chef Joseph’s Alkaline Water.”

‘Embracing’ plant-based businesses 

“Veganism is a growing movement and more and more cities are starting to not only embrace plant-based and cruelty-free businesses, [but] they’re [also] asking for them,” Helene Greenberg, Producer of Scruffy City VeganFest said, according to VegNews

“Knoxville is no different, and we encourage anyone interested in understanding more about how regional businesses are putting their own stamp on the movement to attend this fun, family-friendly event.”

Scruffy City VeganFest will take place on Sunday, October 13 from 11am to 5pm at Knoxville Expo Center, 5441 Clinton Hwy, Knoxville, TN 37912. 

Tickets, which range from $10-$25, can be purchased here
