The Irish Vegan Festival is coming to Belfast this April

If you’re thinking about going vegan, or just looking for more vegan information, then the Irish Vegan Festival is the place to be.

We’re excited to announce that the Irish Vegan Festival will be coming to Belfast this April. The one-day event will provide attendees with the opportunity to explore a range of delicious vegan hot food, amazing cruelty-free products, and to talk with stallholders about which kind of nutritional supplements they should be taking for a healthy and balanced diet. 

It also gives any non-vegans the chance to sample some vegan food and see if they like what they taste. Who knows, perhaps you’ll be swayed and decide to become a vegan after attending this festival? Read on for all the info you’ll need.

As mentioned above, there’s going to be ample opportunity to try delectable hot and cold vegan food from a range of different types of cuisine. The festival is organised by Farplace Animal Rescue, a UK-based animal rescue organisation. All the profits from this festival will be used to help animals, so you can be sure your money is going to a good cause.

You’ll have the opportunity to browse through a range of stalls selling quirky clothes, accessories, and beauty products — all of which will, of course, be vegan. 

Throughout the event, there will be guest speakers giving engaging talks about veganism and how you can do your part in helping our world. There will be educational documentaries about how our food choices affect our environment and overall well-being, and there’ll also be some cooking demos on show. 

It’s going to be a jam-packed day full of interesting vegan products and talks.
