VegBash Coming to Metro Detroit’s East Side  
Event Organizers Join Forces to Celebrate Plant-Based Food, Drink and Living

MI Green Team is pleased to announce its partnership with The Quintessential Event Company, to bring its popular vegetarian/vegan event series, VegBash, to metro Detroit’s east side. The 2017 East MI VegBash will be held on Friday, November 24th from 3pm to 8pm, at the historic Packard Proving Grounds in Shelby Township.

Bill Lonskey, VegBash founder, describes the well-attended event series as a "celebration of creative and flavorful vegetarian and vegan cuisine, libations and living”, developed in response to “an outpouring of interest by vegetarians, vegans and those simply wishing to lead a healthier lifestyle.” The upcoming event will be the fourth VegBash and first event of its kind in Macomb County.

As with past events, the East MI VegBash will offer food, snacks and drinks from many outstanding restaurants, caterers and food trucks, as well as live musical entertainment, an extensive shopping emporium of plant-based natural products and wellness services, free on-site parking, and $5 in concessions vouchers with each adult ticket.

MI Green Team (MGT) will contribute to VegBash with the addition of its plant-based exhibitors and vendors to the already strong line-up, with providers of free massage and wellness checks, and with inclusion of non-profit organizations and leading educators offering expert presentations, food demos, and networking opportunities.

“As a vegan myself, I've been wanting to produce major plant-based living events, but thought there wasn't enough interest. I’ve never been happier to be proven wrong. Participation and enthusiasm were outstanding at both VegBash events I recently attended in Royal Oak and near Ann Arbor.” stated John Batdorf, MGT general manager. “We are looking forward to serving the growing health-conscious, veg-curious community on the east side, with healthy food and shopping alternatives on the busy Thanksgiving holiday shopping day.”

Event details and tickets are available at On-line tickets are $10 per adult and $7 per student/senior (ages 5-20/60+), each offering $2 savings over tickets purchased at the door. Event information and updates are also available at and the “Greater Detroit VegBash” and “MI Green Team” Facebook pages.
