Our mission: To educate and assist the public to embrace a more vegan-friendly life by bringing together the businesses, products and services that will make it easier and more meaningful.
Now in its ninth year, Ottawa Veg Fest has a proven track record of consistently delivering more than 5,000 highly qualified visitors to each event. Ottawa residents have the highest median family income and highest education level of any city in Canada.
As a 100% vegan event, there is no other event like it in the Ottawa market. It attracts not only vegetarians and vegans, but also those who are generally health conscious, people interested in eating more ethically / sustainably, and locavores / foodies.
Most people who attend Ottawa Veg Fest come with the expectation of making purchases. Ottawa Veg Fest continues to offer the best consumer show value for businesses and organizations seeking to target these consumers in the Ottawa market. It has not only “at the show” opportunity, but also facilitates ongoing customer engagement, new customer acquisition, and offers broader exposure to this active and engaged community.

Download the Exhibitor and Sponsorship Package (includes the terms of payment):
Ottawa Veg Fest sells out of exhibitor space at least six weeks early every year. Our price has gone up this year a bit, but this is after FIVE YEARS of no price increases.
There are a limited quantity of exhibitor spaces for each type of space; once those are filled there will be a waitlist established. Note that Ottawa Veg Fest reserves the right to refuse exhibitor space for any reason, including:
- Balancing the types of vendors at the event
- Potential vendors not aligning with Veg Fest’s mission, or not being as within the scope of the event priorities as other vendors
