About VegFest RI

It’s not about us, it’s about YOU! But since you’re asking…

VegFest RI promotes a fun plant-based lifestyle here in Little Rhody. We love eating plants, and we think everyone else will, too, if given the right opportunity. In our travels, we’ve attended veg fests all over the US, and we think Rhode Island deserves to join the fun.

Who are we, you ask?

Robin Dionne is a 20+ year vegan with a big big love of planning Rhode Island community gatherings that take up all of her nights and weekends. She’s a communications professional who has worked with The Arcade Providence, Trinity Brewhouse, TEDxProvidence, Local 121, RI NOW, New Harvest Coffee & Spirits, Great International Beer Fest, RI Spring Flower & Garden Show, and more.

Jim Nellis is the brains behind RI FOOD FIGHTS. RI FOOD FIGHTS has been celebrating local food business in Rhode Island for the past eight years. With over 70 sold-out events and almost 100,000 (wow!) tickets sold, they have truly changed the way that restaurants connect with the public.
