The Lancaster vegan scene is not only supported by restaurants; there are many other initiatives that are making going vegan easy. - Courtney Kokus, Lancaster VegFest Organizer
Eating vegan in Lancaster is becoming easier and easier every year. Not only are new plant-based restaurants opening, but traditional restaurants are showcasing their veggie skills by adding more delicious vegan dishes. There are many different reasons why residents of Lancaster County are choosing to forgo animal products and stick to plants. Some choose it for health. Others for the environment. Some are driven by compassion. No matter the reason, there is one thing we can all connect over, and that’s food.
The Lancaster vegan scene is not only supported by restaurants; there are many other initiatives that are making going vegan easy. Lancaster VegFest is a free annual vegan festival that occurs on the 1st Saturday of June in Buchanan Park. Lancaster Farm Sanctuary is a local non-profit that rescues farm animals and hosts plant-based events including pop-up dinners and various speaker series.
There are also many plant-based chef demos and meetup groups around Lancaster that offer knowledge and support to those transitioning to a more plant-focused diet.
If you’re still questioning whether Lancaster is a city that supports a vegan diet, just look at all these amazing vegan dishes!
