The global vegan movement is spreading rapidly and Winnipeg’s vegan population has exploded in the past few years. With a growing awareness and concern for issues relating to animals, the planet and our health, people are becoming increasingly interested in taking action to make positive change.
With major cities all over the world hosting VegFests to unite the community and cultivate compassion, we decided that Winnipeg was long-overdue for a VegFest of our own!
Winnipeg VegFest is an initiative of the Winnipeg Humane Society’s Farm Animal Compassion Committee. Our volunteer-run committee consists of people who are passionate about helping animals and devoted to spreading compassion. We have been working tirelessly to ensure that Winnipeg VegFest is an event that our city can be proud of and will spread the message of limitless compassion in a fun, engaging and inclusive way.
“What do vegans eat, anyway?!” If you’re under the impression that vegan food is boring, come to Winnipeg VegFest and let us kindly prove you oh-so-very wrong! Today, vegan food encompasses everything from burgers to pizza to cheese to dessert and beyond! We promise to bring you the some of the most delectable vegan food Winnipeg has to offer. Our food vendors will offer a wide array of flavours to tempt your palette and satisfy the appetites of even the most voracious meat-eaters!
Shop ’til you drop…and feel good about it! Our vendors offer sustainable, cruelty-free products such as apparel, body care, artwork and more. Visit our exhibitor booths to learn about various services and organization working to help animals, the planet and promote good health and well-being.
Children are our future and, therefore, extremely important to VegFest. Fostering compassion in children from a young age is vital for creating a sustainable, compassionate world. VegFest will feature a children’s area where kids can take part in various activities and enjoy family-fun entertainment.
