Vegan Prom 2017!

This is the largest fundraiser for Try Vegan PDX and enables us to do all the things we do in the community, including making and printing the Vegan Guide to Portland. 

Come celebrate the end of the first night of VegFest this year with a night of dancing, raffles, food, and fun! Costumes or dress in theme encouraged, but not required. The theme this year is still undecided! Stay tuned to cast your vote!

Prom tickets are $10. There are alternative opportunities if you are unable to afford a ticket but want to attend. Contact info@tryveganpdx.com for more info. 

There will be a raffle with the awesome prizes you’ve come to expect from Try Vegan PDX events, and of course an awesome photo opp area! 

Vegan Prom is always a good time!

Dinner and Ugly Holiday Sweater Bar Crawl

Join the Try Vegan PDX committee on a holiday bar crawl in one of Portland's awesome areas. We will meet at 8pm to grab a bite and then will hit a handful of bars in the Portland area. The map will be posted in early December.

This will also be an outreach event where we will be hanging pro-vegan posters on telephone posts, bulletin boards, and sticking them in newspapers. We will provide all of the material for this part of the event. Now, get going on finding the perfectly hideous outfit for the crawl!

Hike with Try Vegan PDX!

Burnt Lake Trail #772

Forest fires are not new to the Pacific Northwest, and the area around this hike was burned around 1900. The forest around the trail is now home to Douglas-fir, western hemlock, silver fir and vine maple. Forests do regenerate! We'll also see several small creeks and micro-waterfalls as we head up into the Mt Hood Wilderness to a beautiful lake with a great view of Mt Hood reflected in its waters. We'll stop here for lunch before heading back down, so bring some food!

We'll meet at 9am at Gateway Transit Center in the parking garage lower level (east end) and carpool to the hike location.

VegQuest 2017

Join your fellow veg-head adventurers in taking on vegan Portland. In this race, teams of 2–4 people will work to get a few lines or a blackout on a BINGO card - going to destinations, and completing challenges, based on what the BINGO squares say. Besides having a great time, you are sure to discover some great new spots in Portland. This year's race will be in the downtown area of Portland. Mark your calendars! Winning teams get prizes!

Costumes encouraged but not required. 
$10 per person in advance, $15 the day of.

What people have said about their VegQuest experience:
"Great clues, great vegan places to visit, fun teammate, delicious pizza at the end :)"

"It was great, I didn't know what to expect, but it exceeded my hopes."

"I enjoyed meeting new people in the Portland vegan community and helping my teammates discover local veggie establishments."

"Well organized. Grateful for the food at the end since there wasn't a minute to stop and eat lunch."

"Though I was not working and don't know how many folks came by, any exposure for non vegans and for my business is a win."

"It was so much fun—great way to spend a day!"

"It was a learning experience for us, as we recently moved to PDX and didn't have bikes yet nor up-to-date phone technology. Nonetheless, we persevered and won a cookbook!"

"I had a great time!!"
