Welcome to the home of the Pittsburgh Vegan Expo & the ORIGINAL Pittsburgh Vegan Festival!

The Pittsburgh Vegan Expo & the ORIGINAL Pittsburgh Vegan Festival is the city’s oldest and longest-running vegan festival. It was established in the 90’s by Amy “Amethyst” Cottrill, who has spent all these years building up something the city really needed! We are proud to say we are the city’s original.

This event has taken place all over the city, and has moved to its current location at Monroeville Convention Center.

We also hold monthly vegan events in various locations around the city and beyond. See the Other Events section for details.

Our events support food and other businesses, artists, entertainers, healing arts & wellness, and environmentalism (such as our RE-Model Gala: a reuse-themed dance fashion show and wearable art contest), as well as many animal sanctuaries and other non-profit organizations.

Past Guest Speakers

Our festival has featured many prominent speakers, such as Dr. Neal Barnard of Pcrm.org; Dean Caliguire (former Pittsburgh Steeler, Pitt Panther and San Francisco 49er); Khama Worthy (UFC fighter) and more.

Vegan Holiday Roast dinner and cranberry feta wonton stars (yes, vegan feta) by Antonio’s Pizzeria, at the 2022 Holiday Party in Brookline last night, at Thrive on Health. Vegans and non-vegans went nuts over the Holiday Roast - the texture and flavor were so perfect, and really impressed people who eat meat. A guest said the roast was better than an expensive steakhouse he goes to. He said the potatoes and green beans were perfect, too. Our next event will also feature holiday foods by Antonio’s. Come to our Yule/Winter Solstice Party Wed. Dec. 21 from 6-9 p.m. (free admission/all ages) at J&D Cellars Winery in Washington County, PA! ... See MoreSee Less
