My name is Melissa Furman and I am the Co-Founder and Event Organizer for Tulsa VegFest. For the first time in the Tulsa area, and the first of its kind in Oklahoma, Tulsa VegFest, (being held on May 4, 2019) is an annual festival that will bring information and resources about the whole foods plant-based lifestyle together in one place. We hope The Awesome Foundation can be a visible part of this exciting outdoor event that will reach a vibrant community, thousands strong! I invite you to be a Partner of Tulsa VegFest in its inaugural year by way of a financial grant.
Oklahomans are joining the movement of taking control of their health and wellness and caring more about sustainability! That’s why thousands are expected at Tulsa VegFest where attendees can expect to find a wealth of information and resources that emphasize plant-strong, active and sustainable living. We want your organization to be part of this exciting event where attendees from all walks of life and all ways of eating and living will see your organization as a resource for vibrant living!
The Plant-Based Green Country Group (PBGC) - a 501c3 entity - is organizing a VegFest to be held in Tulsa, OK, on May 4, 2019. This event will be free to the public. Our focus is to educate and promote a healthy plant-based lifestyle. This will be the FIRST VegFest in northeastern Oklahoma.
The Tulsa VegFest 2019 will include presentations by nationally recognized plant-based speakers who are experts in their fields, vendor and non-profit booths, and a food court. The vendors will feature plant-based food products--some national brands, environmentally and animal friendly organizations; gardening, exercise, health, and earth-friendly products. The anticipated number of attendees for this first year is 2500-4500+ and will attract people from the region.
Our goal is to educate and encourage others to adopt a Whole Food Plant-Based lifestyle in order to build a stronger, healthier Oklahoma!
