The parade goal is "Celebrating the Vegan/Vegetarian Lifestyle!" Featuring guest speakers, a costume contest, and tons of fun, the Chicago Veggie Pride Parade (CVPP) will be a wonderful all-encompassing event to support local vegans and vegetarians, as well as to raise awareness in the general public about the benefits of a plant-based diet. We encourage everyone, vegans or not, to come and walk, socialize, learn, and celebrate the Veg lifestyle with us!

We welcome all vegans, vegetarians, and any supporters of a plant-based diet who would like to give or receive support in their choices, whether they are based on Ethical, Environmental, Health or Spiritual reasons. The mission of the parade is to unify the voices of everyone who sees an advantage to a plant-based diet and wishes to share and promote it. This unified voice will help to make a strong impact in promoting a plant-based diet and will bring public attention to the global importance of our food choices. Let us all unite and inspire others to join us!

The Veggie Pride Parade has been held annually in Paris since 2001, but later has also been emulated in other cities and spread throughout the world.  It has been very successful in New York for many years (see the photo) and now we brought it to Chicago! The very first Chicago Veggie Pride Parade was in 2012. It was a huge success with about 600 participants!
