What are vegan festivals about?
Are you thinking to switch to a diet with less meat and dairy? Perhaps you even participated in Veganuary and thinking to keep up eating less meat or none at all? If you don’t know where to start or you just want to meet with some local vegan peeps and small businesses, vegan festivals are a great place to start. Much like any other festivals, there are a lots of great food to try, learn more about local businesses, meet like-minded people and of course have a good time. At these vegan festivals during the spring of 2018 you’ll find some great live music, inspirational talks, live cookery demonstrations, workshops and children’s activities, so they make a perfect family day out too.
There will be a great selection of non food stalls at the event selling a wide variety of items including fashion, footwear, jewellery, beauty and skincare products, candles, crafts, clothing, footwear, homeware, gifts and charity merchandise.
