Vegan Options at High Water Music Festival 2023 (Charleston, SC)

If you are looking for vegan options at the High Water Music Festival in Charleston, South Carolina, we can help you out! This festival is being held April 15-16, 2023 at the Riverfront Park.

To start off I have to say I am pleasantly surprised by what they are offering. Just about every food vendor is offering a vegan menu item. 

They do have them labeled as vegan so that is good news for you but it’s going to get crowded and this quick guide may make it a whole lot easier for you to plan.

Where Can I Find The Food Vendors?

When inside the festival, you will see an area called, The Refuge. It sits just left of the Edisto Stage. Just past the Refuge is where you will find the food vendors. There is also a nicely shaded area with picnic tables towards the back as well. 

If you are looking at The Refuge “awning,” I’m going to start my list as you walk inside to the left then circle back around.

Please know, there are food trucks that may have options I do not have information on. What I’m giving you is what is available at the vendor booths.

Vegan Options at High Water Festival 2023
Tamashi’s Orange Cauliflower Bowl
  • Orange Cauliflower Bowl … comes with breaded cauliflower, orange sauce, sesame seeds, green onion, rice and shaved cabbage. They have packets of soy sauce. The orange sauce on the cauliflower is very flavorful but the cabbage is dry. Either mix everything together well or add some soy sauce.
  • Veggie Spring Rolls.

  • 10″ Cheese Pizza. Order with Vegan Cheese.
  • Garlic N Shroom. Order with Vegan Cheese … comes with tomato sauce, vegan mozzarella, fresh tomatoes, mushrooms and minced garlic.

Smash City Burgers

  • The Jodie Foster … served with Fries. We have no idea what kind of burger it is or what is on it. 

Roti Rolls

  • Funky Farmer … comes with green coconut curried veggies, pickled onions, salsa verde and arugula

Dank Dogs

  • Vegan Fries … comes with salsa verde, fire roasted cauliflower, mushrooms and onions

Ben & Jerry’s Truck

There is a Ben & Jerry’s truck but we have not confirmed if they brought their non-dairy options with them. Definitely worth stopping by and asking.

To Round It Up…

You very well may find more vegan food at the other food trucks but these are the options I was able to gather. It is going to be 80 degrees so don’t forget your vegan sunscreen and make sure to drink plenty of water. I did see a couple of water stations for you to fill up for free if you prefer to do that. 

Happy Festival’ing in Charleston this weekend!
