Health & Safety


Compassionate Action for Animals and the Twin Cities Veg Fest Planning Committee take the COVID-19 pandemic seriously. If you feel unwell on the day of the event, please do not attend in person.

To promote health, masks are encouraged when in lines, at booths, and when social distancing is not possible. Masks are required indoors, in the speaker/cooking demo tent, and in the shuttle.

We will continue to be aware of all updates and recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health and the Center for Disease Control and will design our COVID-19 policies around their recommendations.


We expect all festival participants to follow our code of conduct. If you have safety concerns during the festival, please approach a person with a walkie-talkie, go to the Twin Cities Veg Fest booth, or go the volunteer and VIP area inside the pavilion. We will have volunteers who will deescalate problem situations. The Saint Paul police will also be at the festival to handle any major safety issues that arise.


  • If there is an emergency, dial 911. Then notify a volunteer wearing a nametag.
  • There is an AED device in the pavilion building.
  • Volunteer medical professionals will be at the Twin Cities Veg Fest/First Aid/Lost Child area.
  • St. Paul police will be on-site.
