How are you 2018

Well that was fast! 2017 came and went in a blink of an eye. We were busy creating new products and building the brand as we met tons of great people along the way. This year alone we have done already 3 major food festivals in the Phoenix area. YES the vegan community is GROWING! People are becoming more health concious and treating themselves (along with the environment and animals) with consideration and compassion. We appreciate that and are happy to be a part of it. We have a bunch more great events coming up and will be doing some travelling into California for some of them. But first, NEXT WEEK marks the 1 year anniversary of a very special event that was created by some very special people, ZEN NIGHTS! This plant based gathering happens the last friday of every month from 6-10pm. It is a free event that takes place on Main st. and South Macdonald in downtown Mesa. Come out and enjoy an evening of plant based food, cruelty free vendors, live music and fun for the whole family. We will be there. In the meantime, have a great day!

Desert Trip was "A Trip"

3 night festival, 2 weekends in a row, the biggest rock heroes in the world. What more can we say?             It was absolutely incredible and we were happy to be a small part of it.                                                             High class food, high class EVERYTHING! 

Here are some image highlights. Enjoy..... 

Rocco's Sweet Shoppe at Coachella

Being a vendor for the first time at Coachella was just as rewarding as being a spectator. In fact, it felt a little more special being 'a part' of the event.

This amazing gathering has been happening for 16 years now and still remains tasteful. Over the years they have expanded their VEGAN options and we were able to sample some delicious cruelty free items from Simply Vegan, Donut Farm, and Sage Vegan Bistro. Our favorite meal came from Ramenhood.

Along with great food, we were able to catch some great live shows too from Rancid, Ice Cube, The Damned, and Major Lazer.

All in all we had a fantastic weekend seeing old friends, making new ones and sharing our sweet treats with everyone. See you next year Coachella.

AZ VegFest 2016

We were honored to be a part of the AZ vegetarian food festival this year. We couldn’t have asked for a better event to introduce Rocco’s Sweet Shoppe to the public. The numbers doubled from last year and proved that the vegetarian / vegan community is growing in the Phoenix area.

We got to hang out with local business friends Ali Metzger of Eat Vegan Food (food truck), and the gang over at 24 Carrots.

We also made new friends with some of the national companies that came out like Heidi Ho Organics, Upton's Naturals, and Herbivore Clothing. In addition to the awesome vendors, there were great speakers, fantastic cooking demos, and a family friendly kids area.
