Thank You for Volunteering at Vegfest 2016!

Vegfest 2016 was a huge success because of all of our wonderful volunteers who worked so hard to make it happen.

We had volunteers working from 9am on Thursday morning, driving a truck to load up all kinds of stuff and deliver it to the Seattle Center, to finally unloading that same truck on Monday morning, putting everything back into storage for next year.


On Friday, volunteers unloaded trucks, delivered boxes to the right booths, put out tablecloths and signage, prepared envelopes of coupons and new member bags, washed cooking equipment and put out equipment and supplies on booths.

During the weekend, volunteers handed out flyers directing people to Vegfest, greeted attendees,  handed out bags, worked the refrigerated trucks, packed membership bags, assisted chefs and speakers, worked the cash registers, helped people with health screenings, and the biggest job of all, volunteers served a whole lot of food !

Finally on Sunday evening, volunteers set up our end-of-event sale of food, and then packed up everything we could keep, and loaded it onto the truck. Monday morning volunteers helped unload everything back into storage ready for next year.

If you weren’t able to volunteer this year, we hope you’ll be able to help next year instead. Check back in January 2017, when we’ll be recruiting volunteers again!
