Luvin Arms Spring Fest 2024, “Ahimsa Awakens”

Please see below for all attendee, vendor and volunteer information

Luvin Arms Animal Sanctuary invites you to join us for this vibrant event on May 4th, from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm, at our sanctuary located at 3470 County Rd 7, Erie, CO, 80516.

Spring Fest celebrates compassion, community, and sustainable living. It’s an opportunity for families and community members to visit our vendor village (featuring 50+ local compassionate businesses), our rescued animal residents, and sample delicious cuisine at vegan food trucks. This year’s event will feature various activities, including meet and greet opportunities with animal residents, live music, educational experiences, and a special kids’ area.

Celebrate the onset of spring with us during Spring Fest, where we also mark one of our biggest fundraising events of the year, gearing up for the sunnier days ahead. Your support in reaching our $25,000 goal would mean the world to us. Click below for further details, or kindly consider making an additional donation at checkout.

Please note that all ticket purchases are non-refundable.

Can’t make the event but still want to support our Spring Fundraiser?

Interested in being a Spring Fest vendor?

Last year, we welcomed over 5,000 visitors; this year, we expect even more! It’s an excellent opportunity for vendors to showcase their plant-based, cruelty-free products and connect with a dedicated audience.

Denver Vegan Chef Challenge: Specifically for our food vendors, this challenge is a golden opportunity to highlight your culinary skills and vegan offerings. There’s no need for a new dish; feature one of your crowd-pleasers! Participation means increased visibility through our social media channels and on the Denver Vegan Chef Challenge website in collaboration with Vegan Outreach.
