The annual festival returned to the Greenway on Bethlehem's south side for its third year on Saturday. The free event included eco-friendly exhibitors, vegan and vegetarian-friendly food vendors, pet adoption organizations, speakers, and live cooking demonstrations. There was also plenty of live music for fest-goers to enjoy with Godfrey Daniels and WLEV each hosting a stage with performers. Sunny skies and comfortable temperatures in the 70's helped make the day a success.
According to Bethlehem VegFest, the festival brings an average of 10,000-12,000 visitors to Bethlehem's south side making it one of the largest single-day festivals in the city's history. The festival is organized by the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Bethlehem Association.
