Edinburgh Vegan Festival – Sunday 21st April 2019
The annual Edinburgh Vegan Festival is upon us once again. VFUK held the Scotland’s first ever vegan festival in Edinburgh and this will be our 5th time in the capital city.
Due to the overwhelming success of Edinburgh Vegan Festival 2018 and the great feedback, we are returning again to the world famous Murrayfield Stadium
For pics/vids of previous visits ( https://veganfestival.co.uk/gallery/).
We are sure to make Edinburgh Vegan Festival 2019 an amazing, memorable and obviously a cruelty free day out for the whole family. Along with the fact that VFUK is the UK’s only family run Vegan Festival, our venue boasts free parking and the fact that you are supporting the largest growing movement in the world is reason enough to attend, but here are 5 big reasons to visit Edinburgh vegan festival this year.
1. Multi Award Winning Festival
Although Vegan Festival UK has been nominated for many awards over the years, we always got beat to the post by larger business, but last year we were asked to attend the prestigious national P.E.A Awards in London. It was huge honour to be a finalist among some of the UK’s leading sustainable companies, but hearing “The Winner Is Vegan Festival UK” was a little surreal. For more details on this amazing evening (P.E.A Awards), also this July 2nd 2018 we were chosen from a long list of festivals and events, to become the winner of Festival Of The Year 2018. That fact that we have been even nominated for these awards is fanatic, but becoming a finalist and then winning is awesome.
2. Amazing Vegan Businesses
Edinburgh will welcome a large selection of vegan business’s coming from across the UK. If you have ever been to one of our festivals before you may recognize some of our business’s, but this year we have many new companies you may have never heard of. If you are not vegan or vegetarian you will soon realise that removing animal products from our lives, is easier than you think. Come and talk to these amazing companies, maybe taste / try some of there fabulous products and support the vegan movement.
This is what stall holders had to say about our previous event.
3. Speakers & Guests
At all our festivals we have a selection of interesting talks from our speakers and guests, Edinburgh Vegan Festival 2018 talks include :- Go Vegan Scotland – A talk about what veganism is, vegan advocacy, the GVS approach and why vegan advocacy is essential.
4. Some Free Vegan Stuff
As with our previous festivals the stall holders encourage you to try their wares, this normally comes in the form of food tasting or drinks. This year we will be handing some vegan goodies and vouchers to vegan restaurants in the area. As with most things that are free – first come first served.
5. Edinburgh Is Beautiful
If you take the time to come and visit us at our new venue (Murrayfield Stadium), why not take in the of Edinburgh’s fantastic tourists hots spots such as the Edinburgh Castle and the Museum of Scotland, or even watch the street performers during the Edinburgh Fringe. We hope to make this event the largest vegan event Scotland has ever seen, but we can’t do this with out your support, so please take an hour out of your day on Sunday April 21st and support our cause.
