North Yorkshire Vegan Festival

Hall M - Entrance 4 - Saturday 17th March

Thousands of vegans, vegetarians and curious meat-eaters are set to descend on Harrogate as the town plays host to the North Yorkshire Vegan Festival.

The festival, which takes place at Harrogate Convention Centre on the 17th March, is organised by animal rescue charity Farplace, will feature a myriad of stalls selling hot and cold food, cosmetics, clothing and crafts.

The festival is aimed at bringing vegans together, showcasing vegan products and services, and encouraging non-vegans to sample the lifestyle and learn more about potentially making the switch - as well as raising funds for the charity. 

Kerri Turner, senior events manager for Farplace, said: "We're really excited about heading to Harrogate with the festival. It's obviously a great event for vegans, but everyone is welcome - particularly meat-eaters and vegetarians. The festival is a chance for anyone to come along, try something different, sample some products and find out more about a lifestyle free from animal products. But, of course, it's also a great event for vegans to meet, learn more about products, services and projects that are out there, and stock up on supplies and treats."

Veganism has seen a massive increase in Yorkshire and throughout the UK in recent years. Figures released by The Vegan Society last year showed there were more than half a million vegans in the UK - an increase of 360% from 2006 to 2016.

Kerri said: "Veganism has massively taken off in the UK in recent years. People make the switch for lots of reasons: health reasons, the environment, or, of course, because they don't want to be a part of animal slaughter and exploitation."

As well as scores of stalls there is a programme of talks and activities taking place throughout the day.

Tickets are £3, and available on the door or in advance.

This event ended on Saturday 17th March. Tickets are no longer available.
