Three important Try Vegan Week announcements!

If you are not familiar with Try Vegan Week PDX, check out our website:

Pre-Try Vegan week mentor training and potluck!

Saturday May 31, 1-3 pm @ People’s Co-Op community room ( SE 21st, one block north of Powell Blvd.)

Try Vegan Week starts on June 7th, and we are working hard to create the most friendly environment possible for people to try Veganism. We need your help! We’re looking for Vegan mentors who can support those signed up to Try Vegan for the week and beyond. You can always mentor friends, co-workers or family members.

There are lots of ways to get the best possible use of the TVW schedule, and this training is open to new mentors and anyone else with an interest.

It’s a vegan potluck, so feel free to come and share food.

Try Vegan Week is just over two weeks away.

TVW is the best time to experiment with and/or commit to a vegan lifestyle, and a perfect time to mentor friends and family. For one week, the Portland vegan community will be working together to support others in their transition to Veganism. We have thirty-three public events the week of June 7th to the 14th. It includes movie screening, lectures, classes, workshops, grocery store tours, and of course Vegan Prom!


Please join us for Try Vegan Week PDX!

Vegan Prom!

Towards the end of Try Vegan Week we want to do something to let our hair down and have fun. So, on Friday June 13th, we’re throwing Portland’s first ever formal dance for the Vegan community. The theme is “Purple Rain” and 70’s or 80’s formal attire is suggested. We’ll have a Vegan DJ, food donated by local restaurants, Best Dressed contest, door prizes and dance fever! Come on vegans! Rule the dance floor with your Mad Moves!

Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. You can buy the tickets on our website or at Herbivore Clothing at the Vegan mini-mall (SE 12th and Stark) Don’t miss the compassionate person’s social event of the year!
