After a successful debut show at the SECC in December 2015, one of Europe’s top vegan festivals Vegfest is returning on December 3rd 4th 2016 and it is going to be even bigger and better.
One of the hallmarks of Vegfest is that it combines vegan food, education, entertainment, socialising in a welcoming, friendly environment and everyone is welcome regardless of their current dietary or lifestyle choice. Vegfest is also marvellous for any businesses with vegan products or campaigners with information on veganism to showcase to well over thousands of visitors.
Vegfest Scotland manager Tim Barford added: “Vegan businesses in Scotland are in a growth area and we are seeing a lot of new startups in Scotland. It is great to see so many passionate and creative businesses rocking up at our show. In 2015, at our first show, we had over 130 stalls and in 2016 we are expecting to see 160 vegan stalls with vegan businesses from across Scotland and the UK.”
Tim continued: “Over 7,000 people attended the first-ever Vegfest Scotland in December 2015. This year’s show, on December 3rd 4th 2016 at the SECC, should see us top 10,000 visitors.”
Vegfest Scotland is all about GOING VEGAN. It’s not about eating less meat, or choosing eggs over fish, or anything like that. It’s about going vegan, pure and simple. Go Vegan. For the animals, for the planet, for your health, and for sustainable global food production. And it’s so easy. Vegfest Scotland will demonstrate just how easy it is to go vegan and stay vegan.
