It started as a very simple idea: dinner and a movie…for vegans! And it quickly grew from there…
Vegan Night Out is a fun community event that gives everyone the chance to get out and go vegan!
Whether you are vegan, transitioning to veganism, or just veggie-curious, Vegan Night Out is for you: vegan-friendly food, film, and fellowship. Enjoy delicious vegan fare and fun activities, then attend a FREE film screening to learn more about living the vegan lifestyle.
In September 2012, the first Vegan Night Out created an opportunity for the Harrisonburg, VA community to celebrate, learn about, and try a vegan lifestyle. Attendees saw real people going vegan, learned about how veganism can make a positive impact on everything from the environment to human health to food security, and celebrated the vegan offerings available in their very own town.
After months of planning and organizing the event, we were blown away at the participation: five downtown restaurants offered vegan menu specials, which hundreds came out to try, and Court Square Theater hosted a free screening of the film Vegucated, which drew a large crowd.
Now, after a second successful Vegan Night Out in Harrisonburg in September 2013, we are spreading the word about this fun vegan event to other areas and offering resources to help other communities put on Vegan Night Out events wherever they are.
