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; Dean Caliguire (former Pittsburgh Steeler, Pitt Panther and San Francisco 49er); Khama Worthy (UFC fighter) and more.
