9th Annual Try Vegan Week
September 17 - 24 (10:00 - 2:00 AM)
Try Vegan Week is a great time to give being vegan a shot and learn more about this lifestyle and find out why people choose to live and eat vegan. The week also includes events that will benefit those who have been vegan for a while and just want to learn how to become better advocates and consumers. There will be something for everyone so be sure to invite your friends!

Try Vegan Week (TVW) is an annual event that is the foundation of Try Vegan PDX. This week long series of events is where Try Vegan PDX began. The week includes workshops, speakers, dine-outs, and mentoring. There will be events for vegans, and the vegan curious (vegetarians and omnivores).

The week concludes with a Vegan Prom, that will include music, photos, costumes, and community. The schedule will be posted in early September. If you are interested in speaking at Try Vegan Week, send us an email at info@tryveganpdx.com.

*All events are free to attend with the exception of Prom which is Try Vegan PDX's biggest annual fundraiser (though there are opportunities for those with lack of funds.*
