(Naperville, IL) Veggie Fest is about to make your taste buds happy. If you’re a vegetarian, you’ll love knowing you can eat something at every single booth in the international food court. If you’re new to vegetarian food, we’re sure you’ll find something that makes you say, “Wow, I didn’t know vegetarian food could be so good!” Not eating dairy? No problem. You’ll find lots of vegan & raw food at Veggie Fest, too.
The Caribbean Kitchen booth, a Veggie Fest favorite, will be back to tempt you with their tasty veggie chicken dishes that people happily form long lines for every year, and so will the popular booth specializing in South Indian dosas – crispy lentil crepes filled with potatoes and onions.
Among other new dishes added to the food court are two new booths: Pasta Prelibato will offer Orzo Salad and Pasta Pesto, and the YA Goodies booth will be serving up organic, vegan red velvet cupcakes and a decadent raw vegan cheesecake made without dairy, flour, or processed sugar.
Fan of authentic ethnic food? You’ll appreciate the variety of vegetarian entrees from the booths offering Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, and Mexican foods along with plenty of goodies your kids will love, too. (Yes, we’ll have pizza and vegetarian corn dogs!)
For lighter fare, swing by the organic salad booth or the vendors blending up fruit smoothies and making fresh juice to quench your thirst.
Whether you’re into salty or sweet, Veggie Fest has got you covered with soft serve ice cream, baked goods, iced cappuccinos, fresh fruits, and young coconuts cracked open right in front of you, in addition to freshly popped popcorn, nachos, fries, veggie kabobs, and corn on the cob straight off the grill.
With the huge international food court; health professionals speaking on diet, lifestyle, and environmental issues; engaging food demos by restaurant owners, chefs, and authors; an incredible children’s tent with face painting, clowns, and crafts; live music from some of Chicago’s best bands; and over 100 vendor booths to explore, it’s easy to see why over 25,000 people from around the world attended the two-day Veggie Fest last year.
