Since it’s start in 2016, VegFest Oahu has had many dedicated activists working for months to bring this inspiring day to you, our island community. You can read about the Team from past events here: 2018 Team and 2017 Team and 2016 Team.
The 2019 festival is supported by:
Joy Waters – Founder and Festival Producer. Joy, the entrepreneur behind Positive Media Hawaii, is a relentless optimist on a mission to inspire people to be engaged citizens. Her passion is creating life-changing media content and events. A vegan foodie and long-time advocate for plant-based living, she produced the TV show Tasty and Meatless long before Hawaii had its first vegetarian restaurant. She is also the Organizer of the Oahu Vegan Meetup. Joy decided to produce VegFest Oahu because she believes this event will strengthen the local, plant-based community and be the tipping point towards more sustainable island perspectives.
Special Mahalos To
Plastic Free Hawaii and Doorae Shin – Water Refill Station. One of Kokua Hawaii Foundation‘s projects which provides resources, tools, and trainings to educate schools, business partners, and community members about the environmental and health benefits of going plastic free to minimize single-use plastics in our islands. We are grateful for the use of their Water Refill Station which they offer free of charge to events to help create a Plastic Free Hawaii. More than 15 Oahu events have eliminated the need for 13,891 single-use plastic water bottles in the last year alone. Deep thanks to Doorae who will deliver, set-up, maintain, and pack up the Water Refill Station on event day.
