Vegan Fairs, Festivals + Markets UK, 2018

by Penny
Last updated: 12/11/18

When I started this list, I had no idea there were so many vegan events in the UK – this list is long… and growing! If you know of any more vegan fairs, festivals or markets, or spot any that have been cancelled, relocated or rescheduled, please let us know, so we can keep this list up to date.

As much as we would love to visit every single vegan event in the UK, we’re just not that fortunate, so this is a list of suggestions, rather than recommendations! Please double check event info before attending in case of any changes.

    How do I add an event?

  • Badger says:

    Please try and keep your list updated, i made a load of food for the Romsey fair on the 21st Oct only to find out too late that is not on. same goes for the one on 9th Dec. I did have a word with Romsey who said that they have informed you, but it is still listed?……

    • I have to say that I find it strange that the organisers of the fair didn’t tell you directly the fair was cancelled. We are assessing whether it is worth us continuing the listing of fairs on the website as it takes a lot of admin for us to update and keep up-to-date with changes, especially as there are so many fairs on now. There were 7 in October alone. We have our community page and feel that may be a better platform than the website for people to promote their events.
