A Very Vegan St. Patrick's Day Parade!

A Very Vegan St. Patrick's Day Parade!

  • Cleveland, OH United States

Kiss me, I'm Irish...and Vegan!

Irish, or Irish just for the day, we invite all Vegans in the CLE to come have some Irish-Vegan fun by marching in Cleveland's St. Patrick's Day parade with us!

Join the Cleveland Vegan Society on Friday, March 17, 2017, for the 175th Cleveland's St. Patrick's Day Parade, as we march as a group, creating awareness of veganism in Cleveland. Join us as we show our city and 500,000 parade-goers that vegans are here and we are many!

Our parade unit will increase the visibility of vegans in CLE, intending to inspire the vegan-curious to seek more information, to motivate local businesses to become vegan-friendly, to increase awareness of Cleveland VegFest, to encourage current vegans to connect with Cleveland Vegan Society, and to reach out to other vegans in the community.

We will hold the Cleveland Vegan Society banner and carry individual signs with positive vegan messages. We are required to be in a group uniform (we will most likely use our VegFest Tees or print CVS tees for this purpose). The tees can be worn on top of lots of warm layers!

The parade steps off at 1:04 PM and lasts approximately 2 hours. We will gather before the parade for check-in, coffee and treats, sign-making, and getting in uniform. We are planning some Irish-Vegan shenanigans for after the parade!
