Manchester Vegan Festival is a popular annual event with over 80 fantastic stalls showcasing the best of the vegan lifestyle.
It is being held on Sunday 15th May 2022. Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian or looking to go vegan, this event has everything you could possibly need all under one roof.
Festival organiser, Victoria Bryceson comments, “I’m really looking forward to the Manchester Vegan Festival which is set to be even bigger and better than last year’s. We received so much positive feedback last year and there’s now so much demand that this festival is becoming a sell-out event.
I think it’s partly because people really love the friendly atmosphere. The wonderful thing about the event is that it’s for everyone whatever your lifestyle. Just come along and bring your friends for a great, fun day-out. You’ll have everything you need there, whether you’re looking for some retail-therapy, some ‘me’ time, precious family time or just a lovely meal out with some friends.”

Also exhibiting is the ultimate vegan food and camping experience happening in June 2023 – VFest UK. This brand new upbeat event features exciting headline acts, yoga, family entertainment, fun shows, international speakers, stalls, global food caterers and much more.
Charities and not-for-profit organisations attending include Greenpeace, Hugletts Wood Farm Animal Sanctuary, Plantlife, Viva!, Woodland Trust and WWF. Also attending is Miracle’s Mission, a non-profit animal welfare organisation that works with sick, injured and disabled animals worldwide.
Its mission is to provide a place of safety for animals in danger, to educate on the needs of neutering both pets and strays and to neuter stray dogs and cats to prevent the birth of more animals onto the streets. It also rehabilitates and re-homes dogs in need, often with disabilities, from its UK rescue base.
The event helps raise valuable funds for animal welfare charity Miracle’s Mission. 100% of any proceeds will go directly to animal welfare charities as the festival is fully volunteer run.
