About Asheville Vegan Society

Founded in 2005, The Asheville Vegan Society is a North Carolina 501(c)(3)non-profit organization.

Our Purpose is to create a compassionate, enlightened community where veganism is the accepted and respected norm.

Our Vision is to be the go-to resource for vegan education, materials, community, and support in the Asheville area.

Our Mission is to promote the benefits of a vegan lifestyle through varied activities and community engagement.


The Asheville Vegan Society has organized four Asheville VegFests in the past. For 2019, we will support Asheville VeganFest by signing on as a sponsor. This festival will take place on Sunday, June 9, 2019 at Pack Square Park. Additionally, there will be an Education Day on June 8th. For details, visit their website.

Our Vegan Awareness Week is now our Vegan Awareness Series. We will sponsor or host various events throughout the year in order to spread awareness of the benefits of veganism. Our first event for 2019 was sponsorship of Eat to Live at the Jubilee church, by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. This event was very informative about the health benefits of a nutritarian diet. Our second event for the year is the sponsorship of VeganFest. AVS will be present both days with a table full of helpful information to support everyone in their vegan journey.

Vegan for Personal Health

It’s becoming more well known every day that whole food plant based (healthy vegan) diets prevent and reverse the most common diseases and causes of death in the USA. Visit our Why Vegan page for more information.

Vegan for the Animals

Dogs are eaten in China. Horrifying, right? Eating other animals is no different. We have been conditioned to accept the animals eaten in our country as ‘food animals’, as if they are different from animals we call pets. Visit our Why Vegan page for more information.

Vegan for the Environment

Animal agriculture is destroying our planet. Visit our Why Vegan page for more information.

Vegan for Human Rights

Yes, animal and human rights are connected! Visit our Why Vegan page for more information.
