The History of
Houston's Largest Annual
Vegan Thanks-Living Celebration

It has been a Vegan Society of P.E.A.C.E. tradition to host Houston's Largest Annual Vegan "Thanks-Living" for several years now. This family-style event is popular and well-attended by all ages and backgrounds, including those who are vegan-curious.

We have hosted a wide range of Annual Vegan "Thanks-Living" events since the very first one in November 2007! These have included restaurant dinners and catered events at large reception halls. This annual celebration started years ago when we rented an entire restaurant, but quickly outrgrew the space needed. The event has become so large that we now host gigantic vegan potluck dinners on college campuses and inside event center ballrooms.
