Festival Site Map


The 6th annual Vegandale Chicago, presented by Project Pollo x TiNDLE, returns to the windy city Saturday, June 11th to bring you an epic party with all the food, drinks, music, contests, and art installations featuring over 100 vendors and sponsors from across the continent and beyond.

You can search vendors using our interactive site map to easily see where they’re located, save your favs and plan out your perfect festival day.

We've also put together the following list of 10 things you need to know to keep you having a good time all day long!


  1. 📸 #VEGANDALE COMPETITION: Use #Vegandale on all your photos for a chance to win an all expenses paid trip to LA! 😎 Details here.
  2. 💃 DRESS FOR THE FEST: The photo ops are endless this year so be sure to come in your best festival clothes! Don’t forget to bring sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat - the event will go on rain or shine!

  1. 🍻FULL BAR: We'll be serving up beer, wine, ciders, seltzers, and non-alcoholic drink options to quench your thirst and keep the party going all day long! Pop by our bar to enjoy a cold one in our designated lounge area before waiting in line for food.

  2. 🎟️ ENTRY TIME: All General Admission and Early Bird ticket holders are free to come to the festival anytime between 11:00 AM and 7:00 PM. All 3:00 PM Entry ticket holders can only enter after 3:00 PM and can stay until 7:00 PM. E-tickets will be scanned from your phone.

  3. 🎒 WHAT TO BRING: Water, blankets, chairs, and umbrellas are all allowed. We suggest bringing both credit/debit cards and cash to the event (the bar is cashless, but ATMs will be available).

  4. 🚃 GETTING THERE: Grant Park is right in downtown Chicago and accessible by public transit, biking, and walking. If you are driving, please purchase your parking online here through our parking partner, Millennium Garages, to receive a discounted rate on the most convenient parking.

  5. 🚰 STAYING HYDRATED: Water will be sold at our two water bars in the middle of the park, however, due to city restrictions we won't be able to provide refillable water stations.

  6. 🎤 PREPARE TO BE ENTERTAINED: This year, we have more entertainment than ever between our epic art installations, lawn games, chances to win some incredible prizes with contests and DJs spinning live from the stage throughout the day!

  7. 🐶 PETS: Given the loud music and large crowd, Vegandale can be a stressful and overwhelming situation for animals so we ask that you please leave your pets at home.

  8. EXPECT SOME LINES: You’re heading to the fastest-growing vegan festival in the world! We suggest you plan ahead using our interactive site map, divide and conquer, and grab a drink at one of our two bar locations while you wait.
