Richmond’s Third Annual Plant-Powered Weekend – Not just Salad Days!

Did you know January is Veganuary ( – the best month of the year to try vegan? And it’s the slowest month of the year for restaurants. So, Vegan Action is hosting RVA’s third annual vegan restaurant challenge this month – V72. Once again, we’ve challenged area restaurants to flex their skills with special vegan options for the weekend of January 24th – 26th – 72 hours of amazing vegan food in Richmond. This will be THE weekend to get out and try all the best vegan food of the year! Including some from last year and some great new ones;
Check our Facebook page for participating restaurants and their Vegan72 specials in the coming weeks.
There will be Passports again this year! Patrons can turn in their V72 Passport after visiting 4 or more locations and get a complimentary vegan ice cream scoop from Charm School Social Club. Part of our 72 hours of celebration also includes hosting inspiring, informative, and entertaining speakers and events.
