About the event's growth:

Amy "Amethyst" Cottrill, is the creator and originator of Pittsburgh's longest-running vegan festival, having started with smaller community events in the 90's, which gradually grew into the current expo!
For many years, the event was moving around, until it settled on the north side for years (but then my original spot there was suddenly taken by a new group), then I moved it to the north hills, and now is getting huge and has moved to Monroeville Convention Center!

Not to be confused with other unassociated festivals, this particular event is now (The Original) Pittsburgh Vegan Expo & Convention.

Stay tuned for more details!

Amy "Amethyst" Cottrill is the contact, at pittsburghveganexpo@gmail.com, to discuss opportunities with Pittsburgh Vegan Expo.
