Revved-up by politics and socio-economics and focused on challenging the status quo of eating and living, these two thought-provoking and dynamic men are joining their voices in the hopes of invoking change. London marketer and restaurateur Glenn Whitehead and Fanshawe professor Marty Menard, better known together as the Two Reasonable Vegans, advance the vegan conversation to the next level with their exciting—and sometimes controversial—approach to tearing into a topic with passion and some spice! They are driven by ideas and opinions that are raw, honest, unapologetic, and totally engaging. When these two take the stage, the energy is palpable, and audiences are totally captivated.  VISIT US @ | LIKE US @

Food Drive

WNY VegFest is happy to sponsor a Vegan Food Drive at the festival to benefit Buffalo Food Not Bombs, a group which gives free healthy food to anyone who is hungry. Please bring any non-perishable vegan food items to the event. FNB has suggested rice, canned or dry beans, lentils, whole grains, pasta, olive oil, balsamic or apple cider vinegar, flours, teas, coffee, sea salt, or other vegan items.

Items will be collected at the Food Not Bombs booth throughout the day!

Join us at the Festival! Buffalo and Western New York have seen an explosion of interest in health, compassion, and plant-based eating over the last few years. With the creation and growth of groups like Buffalo Vegetarian Society, WNY Vegans, Animal Advocates of WNY, and ASHA Animal Sanctuary, the local community is eagerly anticipating WNY VegFest.
