VEGANS OF Ireland rejoice!
Whether for health, environmental or anti-cruelty reasons—or just because plant-based food is absolutely delicious—Ireland’s vegan community has been thriving in recent years.
After the success of the Cork festival earlier this year, Dublin is now set for another round of the popular annual vegan event, aptly named VegFest.
Kicking off on the weekend of the 28th of September, the festival will take place in Griffith College and will celebrate all things vegan, showcasing everything from healthy salads to junk food such as vegan hotdogs, burgers and fried chick’n.
Be sure not to fill up too much on the mains, because the spread of vegan desserts set to be on offer are mouth-watering just to look at, and are sure to taste even better.
The tickets, which you can purchase from the website here, start from a very reasonable €10, and will allow access to hundreds of different meals and snacks. But as veganism is a lifestyle rather than just a diet, there are a myriad of talks, workshops and demonstrations also scheduled to take place over the weekend.
Thousands of people attended last year’s Dublin VegFest, with the crowd this year expected to be even bigger. So if you’re committed to a plant-based diet, considering becoming vegan or just interested in trying new food, VegFest is the place to be.
