About VegFest Bristol:

VegfestUK – one of Europe’s biggest and best vegan food and live music festival – are back in Bristol for the 11th year on May 23rd 24th 25th 2014 at the outdoor Amphitheatre. With 140 stalls full of mouthwatering food alongside fashion, cosmetics and bodycare, plus talks, cookery demos, workshops, films, kids’ cookery classes and live comedy during the day, and legendary punk rock band Ruts DC amongst other captivating headliners in the evenings, this mega-event is certain to attract not only veggies and healthy-eaters but dedicated food and festival lovers.

“Since our shows began back in 2003, we’ve always strived to maintain a balance between festival charm and food education, and that has proved to be very attractive for the veggie-curious, the meat reducers and ‘flexitarians’, who have been growing in leaps and bounds for the past decade,” say the organisers. “VegfestUK gives everyone a top day out while getting across the benefits of increasing their fruit, veg and grain intake and reducing their meat and dairy, in a very informal and rock-and-roll atmosphere. The best thing is: no one is under pressure to go veggie at all. People can just come down to our festivals, sample a myriad of quality, healthier plant-based substitutes for their customary sausages, doner kebabs, chicken nuggets, milkshakes and pizzas, enjoy the festival capers, then make their own dietary decisions afterwards.”
