The Culture Café
Check out the more eclectic side of vegan culture with our own coffeehouse and performance space. Nestled upstairs from the entrance lobby, it features a gourmet coffee and milk bar with  nearly a dozen great alternative milks, as well as fresh baked goods from Delicious Café. Catch live performances from local folksingers and spoken word artists or groove to the darkwave exploits of dj veganinblack. Watch artists build their creations right before your eyes, express your feelings on our graffiti wall, or just hang back, make a new friend or two, and enjoy some conversation before going back to the madness below.

Culture Café performance stage
This year, the Culture Café has its own stage featuring a great schedule of thoughtful singer-songwriters and spoken word artists with sonic interludes from DJ Veganinblack. The day's schedule is listed below.

Live Artists
The Culture Café features works from artists Zac Franzoni and Marci Rubin Art creating works before your eyes.

Coffee and alternative milk bar

Real milk comes from from almonds, soy, rice, coconuts, oats, hemp, and other plants! Here's a chance to see just how many tasty varieties of vegan milk there are as you pair them up with a rich brew from Counter Culture Coffee and some delicious vegan baked goods from Delicious Café.

The Vegan Rockstar Photo Booth

You'll already be living like a vegan rockstar all day, so you might as well be photographed doing it. Grab a colorful guitar of a pair of drumsticks and show off your best chops to be preserved for eternity on the Chicago VeganMania website.

Graffiti Wall

Last year, the kids had a lot of fun expressing themselves with chalk on a wall we set up in the Family Activities Area. This year, we're adding a much larger wall for the adults in the Culture Café. Let the world know how you really feel.
