Vegan Festival Is Back For 2017

Vegan Festival Is Back For 2017

Ellie Stamelos

If you’re looking for a way to be good to animals, the planet and your health, look no further than Vegan Festival Adelaide. As is addressed on their website, though veganism is rooted in the ethical and compassionate treatment of animals, it addresses a plethora of other pressing issues, too. Not only does veganism reduce your risk of many chronic diseases and conditions, it helps to negate the devastating impact of animal agriculture on the environment. You certainly don’t have to be vegan to make a difference, though; even eliminating meat from your diet one day a week helps your health, the environment and your wallet!

This is where the festival comes in. Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, or just looking to enjoy the delicious eats, the festival truly has something for everyone. This year will mark the festival’s 10th year running in our city, after starting up in 2007. Australia has “the third fastest growing vegan market in the world” and this is reflected in the massive growth in festival attendance, from 1000 people in 2007 to last year’s crowd being capped at over 12,000.

Though you’ll be sure to find all of the vegan food / drinks / products that your heart desires at this festival, there’s much more on offer. Past years have included yoga and Qi-gong classes, meditation and fitness workshops, informative keynote speakers, live cooking demonstrations, entertainment for children, henna stalls, music and dancing – seriously, what more could you want?

Support local, go cruelty-free, get informed and have a blast at this year’s Vegan Festival.
