Eastern Market to Host V313: Detroit’s Premier Vegan Celebration
City's first vegan event March 8 features food, music, games, speakers, speed dating & more
V313: Detroit’s Premier Vegan Celebration will be held Thursday, March 8, 3-9 pm, inside Eastern Market's Shed 5. The event will offer an entertaining, informative and authentic Detroit vegan experience, drawing a large and diverse audience to the historic market building from among the rapidly growing number of metro Detroiters interested in a vegan, or plant-based, lifestyle.
Featuring tasty vegan food (no animal products) and libations, music by local plant-powered musicians, comedy, games and veg speed dating, V313 also showcases a variety of vegan products and services and offers an educational program on vegan living. Highlights include:
“We're excited to bring this first major vegan event to the city of Detroit, whose vegan community is among the most dynamic in the country," says John Batdorf, event manager and general manager of presenting organization MI Green Team (MGT). "The issues addressed are serious, in terms of adopting a healthier, more sustainable and compassionate lifestyle, but the event will be seriously fun too."
Tickets are available at the door and online for $15 and include on-site secure parking. Advance tickets include $5 in concessions vouchers and entry in the drawing for valuable door prizes.
