Saturday 25th November 2017 VFUK visited Aberdeen for regions second vegan festival of 2017. The event was held within the Pittodrie Stadium and the turn out was superb. To see what the attendees and the visitors had to say about this event (CLICK HERE).
After over a year of marketing, phone calls, emails, interviews and social media, along with some last minute hiccups – Edinburgh’s 3rd annual Vegan Festival was finally here. We had a fair idea the event was going to be a success from online ticket sales and general feedback, but no one could expected the huge turn out on the day.
These type of events are a testament to the growing vegan movement here in the UK and abroad. Although we regularly see social media groups and forum with a massive followings, until the large numbers are observed first hand it sometimes can be unbelievable that there are that many like minded people around.
The feedback from the public and stall holders has been overwhelmingly positive and in fact some stall holders sold out before midday. The feedback from the public also was amazing, many took the time to talk to myself and my family about how much of a great experience they had.
I would like to thank everyone who was involved in Edinburgh Vegan Festival, including Suma Wholefoods for their support,all the stall holders that have traveled considerable distances to show their amazing product, services and causes. Huge thanks to the speakers that have spent many hours practicing their presentation to share with us, many in fact also traveled huge distances to do so. I would like to thank the staff at the principle hotel for helping out.
Latest social media feedback
Finally I would like to thank every single person that attended this event, everyone makes the effort to attend these events do their bit to help make the veganism movement stronger.
