Vegan Food Ireland festival Dublin

After being suspended for two years, the traditional Dublin Vegan Festival returns with the expectation of attracting hundreds of people. This year, the event will be held at the Leinster Cricket Club on the 24th and 25th of September from 11 am to 6 pm.

This is a unique opportunity to discover unique flavors from different regions of the world. On the occasion, you can try typical foods from the Caribbean, Middle East, Far East and even South America. Everything vegan.

Try pies, cupcakes, street food, barbecue, chocolate, cheeses, sausages, hamburgers, fried foods, pastries, drinks and many other delicious options.

If you haven’t tried vegan cuisine yet, then you need to confirm your presence at the event. This is a great opportunity for you to start a new eating habit, as well as, of course, getting to know the variety of foods that do not use animal products.

You don’t have to be vegan to participate in the festival, just be a curious person, who wants to know more about this habit, which has grown a lot in recent years.

What to expect from Dublin Vegan Fest 2022

On the occasion, in addition to being able to purchase vegan products, several lectures, cooking classes and artistic presentations will be held. So, it’s much more than a product fair, it’s a lively and pleasant festival for the general public.

The big attraction is the Vegan Food Village, which offers vegan food for consumption on site or to take home. 

The program includes several activities throughout the day. You will understand the relationship between meat consumption and global warming, the health benefits of a vegan diet, the growth of the global market, food and gastronomic tips related to the topic, as well as guidelines for those who want to know more about this lifestyle.

The event is promoted by VegFest, an institution that aims to spread healthy habits through vegan food. 

The first event was held in 2015 and was a public success. Therefore, the organizers decided to hold the festival annually. However, due to the pandemic, the event was not held in 2020 and 2021.

This year, with the return of in-person events in Ireland, organizers hope to attract thousands of people to the two-day festival.
