Recently, the Vida Vegan Con organizers sat down with our pens, markers, assorted highlighters, printouts, posterboard, computers, Michele’s cat, teacups of mimosa, and here today, we officially present our 2011 Vida Vegan Con Classes and Speaking Assignments:

Of course, everything is subject to change. Expect surprises. Our fingers are still crossed for a special guest appearance and dance-along with Ellen.



  • Extreme Food Writing Makeover, Dynise Balcavage, Urban Vegan


Cooking Demos at Whole Foods:

  • To be Announced! (If you’re a speaker and interested – shoot us an email!)

Opening Talk:

  • To Be Announced!

Closing Talk:

Speaking of greatness, if you’re one of our speakers or moderators and don’t feel up to date, email us and let’s get in the loop! As always, stay tuned for more. Detailed email updates are going out for each class starting today.

As of this post, the conference is entirely sold out, but email us immediately at VidaVeganConference [at] to join the waitlist and  we’ll let you know if spots open.

All three organizers (Janessa, Michele & myself) will be doing giveaways on our own blogs, as well as our sponsors. The first creative contest will be announced this weekend on Get Sconed!

Everything is still in development, but if you have any questions or concentrations you’d like the panels, classes, and workshops to cover, simply email us at VidaVeganConference[at] or post on our facebook wall.

We can’t make any guarantees, but we’ll all try our hardest in this big group effort of vegan community!

Look for select live-streaming of the event if you can’t attend!

Our Saturday evening Silent Auction & Galarama will be open to the public as well – details to come! Consider it the vegan prom for vegan bloggers. That’s right.


See you all this summer at the world’s first vegan blogging conference!

    OMG, soooo excited! The hard part will be choosing which panels to attend.

    I don’t see that you have any Fitness Vegan blogger speakers. If you look to add that to your roster I would be VERY interested.

      Hi Elena,

      Our roster includes Wendy Gabbe-Day, from Veg Food & Fit, actually. : )

      Please note that our conference is entirely sold out this year, but we are always taking names for our wait list.

      Thanks for the feedback!
