The Vegan Dairy Fair is the brainchild of Dale McArthur Ball and Lynn Halpern. Both are passionate about teaching people the joys of creating plant-based versions of our favorite foods. Determined to show the general public that foods typically considered “dairy” – cheese, milk, yogurt, butter, ice cream, etc. – needn’t be derived from animal exploitation, they held the first fair in April 2017 to showcase all the delicious options that can be made or purchased that come exclusively from plants. The idea was born in February of 2017 and a within a few months the event was scheduled, planned and held. Due to the great turnout, enthusiasm and support for the inaugural fair, plans are in the works for the next one. To fulfill our mission, attendance should be accessible to all and this means admission should remain free. To do this and offer as much as possible, we welcome sponsorship in a number of ways.
