Upcoming UK Vegan Festivals in August 2019

Upcoming UK Vegan Festivals in August 2019

2019-07-27 
| by Editor | Posted in Vegan festivals

Fasten your seatbelts for over a dozen of captivating vegan festivals and fairs coming up in August – new vegan products, new vegan friends, support for new vegans and information for emerging vegan activists come in abundance at these festivals, and above all, everyone can have a fantastic day out without the added pressure of checking ingredients to ensure that everything is vegan.

Please note: these events are organised by groups and individuals other than VegfestUK, although we support them all by including them in this monthly blog – for further info and latest updates about these events, please visit their event websites / Facebook event pages. For more vegan events coming up, visit the UK Vegan Events Calendar here. If you are organising a vegan event, you are welcome to submit your own onto the calendar via this form here.
