This must be one of the best Vegan events I have had the opportunity to enjoy in Portland for being Vegan. Well setup, excellent mix of entertainment, food and beverage all on the water front in a convenient location for public transit. Top that, the weather was amazing. There were so many beers, food vendors, wears, and everything else in between. Luckily, I’m a stout and porter guy so I knew my selections would be limited to just a few beers available – hence I go for the big glass so I don’t waste time in line. Both the Bison Organic Chocolate Stout and the Golden road Almond milk stout were exceptional. I favored the almond milk stout because of it’s smooth rich body and soft tones.

After a few good beers and time with friends I decided to feed the need – the need for a Mississippi bowl. I have been enjoying this layered Portland treat for years ever since the cart opened and having it at the festival just made things right. To finish it off – not one, but two oh so good raw vegan blueberry cheesecakes.
All made from scratch with love.

To finish off the event is this beautiful expression of community and the wonderfully unique diversity the community embodies. I can’t wait for the next one.
