When and Where: Saturday at the Allegheny Unitarian Universalist Church, North Side

Why: "I'm raising my children vegan, and I want them to grow up feeling supported, to feel excited about veganism. I want people to know that there are options all over this city to eat delicious, plant-based foods," said founder Amy Cottrill.

The Festivities: Roughly 500 people enjoyed different vegan vendors from around the city, bellydancing and bhangra performances, live music from Salsa Ritmo, wellness huts offering massages, vegan skincare and reiki. There was a comedy performance by Lana Aurora and kid-friendly activities.

All are welcome: Rachel Zubrow remarked that it is exciting that Pittsburgh is open to a growing vegan-friendly community. Added Anjali Soi, "I'm not a vegan, but I am passionate about healthy eating, and the food here is absolutely delicious."

Future festival: There will be a fall edition Nov. 21-23 with even more vendors (including Lawrenceville's Franktuary).
