Over the past few months, I’ve been working on a few projects for US Veg Corp, an event production and marketing brand that specializes in plant-based events. Their flagship event is the NYC Vegetarian Food Festival, but they’ve expanded far beyond that.
I was thrilled to do some design work for the second annual Better Booze Festival and had an absolute blast at the festival itself. Many thanks to U.S. Veg Corp for including me on the guest list for the event. We enjoyed unlimited drinks, food samples, and live entertainment. Oh, and everything was vegan!
One of my favorites at the festival was Whitecliff Vineyard. They’re a well-established Hudson Valley winery, but they have only just gone 100% vegan. I also had a really tasty blood mary made with Balls Vodka. It was also great to learn that some of our favorite beers are also vegan! We snacked on food samples and eventually bought a few empanadas from V Spot. Can’t wait until they open their new location in East Village!
I was hoping to say hi to the US Veg Corp ladies that I’ve been working with, but I, unfortunately, didn’t run into them at the event. What I loved about this event, other than it being plant-based, was how it was packed and lively without feeling overly crowded. The lighting and overall mood were also perfect for a daytime drinking event. Looking forward to next year!

Looks like fun! We’re just starting to have more vegan events in my city, I’m trying to get to them all.
I love food festivals, and it makes me so happy to see more and more vegetarian/vegan events pop up. :)
Yes! We just had a vegan pop-up bakery event here on Sunday, it was the first one ever for Grand Rapids (MI). They planned for a few hundred people to come between 11 and 2…they sold out of almost everything by noon!
Sounds fantastic! Once they realize vegan events are under popular demand, more of them will start popping up.
So cool with a daytime drinking event, and I’m so sorry I missed that. PS: The graphics are beautiful:)
There’s always next year! ;) Thanks! I had so much fun working on this project.
