Vida Vegan Con Giveaway!



Vida Vegan Conference Ticket Giveaway

As I mentioned a while ago, I’m attending the 2013 Vida Vegan Conference (VVC) in Portland this May. What is the VVC, you might be wondering? Founded by the lovely Janessa, Michele, and Jess it’s 3 days of seminars, talks, food, fun (duh), and exhibitors all with a vegan twist. And of course, we’ll be prowling the vegan-friendly streets of Portland along the way. This will be my first time visiting Portland and as you can expect I am beyond excited. I might pee my pants actually.

When is it? The VVC 2013 will be held on Friday-Sunday, May 24-26, 2013.

Where? Portland Art Museum, 1219 Southwest Park Avenue Portland, OR 97205

Is there a schedule break down for each day? Why I’m so happy you asked. For the complete VVC schedule see here.

Recently, a reader named Grace contacted me explaining that she bought a ticket to this year’s VVC, but is sadly not able to attend anymore. And because of her super generous heart she’s offering the ticket to one lucky reader! Yes, you have the chance of winning a ticket valued at $280.00 for 3 days of conference fun! If you think you can make it, please leave a comment below to enter this contest.

Please note that the winner will be responsible for all travel, food expenses, and accommodation costs incurred. This giveaway is for the conference pass only. I will select the winner from the comments via  a random number generator and the contest will be open until Tuesday March 12th. The winner will be announced right here on the blog next week! Keep your eyes peeled.

Think you’d like to attend this year’s VVC? Leave a comment below to enter or pass this contest on to a friend who might be interested in going. Thanks again to Grace for her generous giveaway. Good luck to all and I hope to see you there!



I’m excited to announce that the winner is #42 – Congrats Traci! Traci wrote,”I am from Portland and will be home visiting during that time! OH WHAT A TREAT that would be!”

Traci I will shoot you an email today to get things rolling. Thanks again to Grace for her generous ticket donation and to everyone for participating.

If you are still thinking about attending the conference (and I think you should!), there are still tickets for sale.

I would absolutely live to go to this conference! I live in Portland so I have already been debating about going! I’m also a registered dietitian and so the more info I can get n vegan diets is super helpful! I personally eat mostly vegetarian and counsel lots of my patients to eat less meat! Thanks for the giveaway!

Hi Angela, I love you blog, it has inspired my entire family to go vegetarian and hoping to go completely vegan by next year!!!! Our favorite recipes are your Mac and Cheeze sauce and oatmeal bars. I would absolutely love to go to this conference, we live in Idaho so just a hop skip and a jump to Portland!

Shannon C March 7, 2013

I live in Washington so could easy drive down to the convention. I’ve found it difficult to meet other vegan friends, so going to this would be a wonderful opportunity for me!

I would love to attend this conference – I am a relatively new vegan and am a sponge for new information, recipes, and ideas. I would expand my knowledge exponentially, and in turn, educate my readers. What a fantastic opportunity!

I would love, love, love to attend the Vida Vegan Conference. You have inspired me and my roommate to go vegan (I am still working on my parents…) and we love the vegan lifestyle, especially your recipes!!

Thanks!! Maggie

I was planning a trip to Seattle and Portland in May! Please count me in :)

Angela March 7, 2013

Hi Angela! I’ve recently been stalking your website and facebook page for the latest, updated information on Veganism. I have to say, you are wonderful! My sister was diagnosed with Celiacs a couple years ago, and since that time I’ve been learning more and more about my allergy sensitivities as well. We are both virtually vegan (we do each fish occasionally), 100% gluten free, and are always trying to find new avenues to learn about food and it’s power to heal (the transition can be so intimidating). This conference sounds ah-mazing! Keeping fingers crossed for good luck on our side when you pick the winner! :) Best of luck on your continued success!

Kat W March 7, 2013

I want to go so bad! As a new vegan, I feel like this would be a great way to learn more about veganism and help me out a lot. Plus, I’ve been wanting to visit Portland :)

Sadie March 7, 2013

Oh, I am so jealous of anyone that can make this. I can’t enter the contest cause that is just to far for me to travel but good luck, everyone! To whoever is the winner – I wish I was you :)

Kathryn Roger March 7, 2013

When you are in Portland I would recommend trying Portobello Vegan Trattoria. It was super yumm-o and fancy and Dovetail Bakery. I had a vegan cinnamon roll there that was super heavenly. I would love to attend the conference and if I got to meet you in person I might freak out because you are like a celebrity to me.

Shannon @ March 7, 2013
