You don’t have to be vegan to go, but you’ll probably be a fan of vegan food when you leave.
Cork becomes Ireland’s vegan capital on April 27th, 2019, when Cork Vegfest returns to Cork City Hall for a day of plant-based fun.
This year’s speakers include Irish vegan food and beauty blogger and author of the brilliant Vegan-ish, Holly White, who will also be giving a demo later in the day.
A celebration of the vegan lifestyle, the food hall will be heaving with meat-free marvels from 11am to 6pm. Expect vegan cheeses (tastier than you think), falafels, burgers, hot dogs, ice cream, chocolates, healthy salads, cakes and drinks to take you from breakfast until dinner.
Cork’s Earth Cafe founder Carmel O’Sullivan and Virginia O’Gara of My Goodness Food will be sharing their thoughts on veganism and how to make more ethical food choices.
Fiona Oakes, an elite marathon runner who broke the time record for completing the Seven Continents and Polar Ice Cap Challenge will also speak at the Cork event, as will Marc Pierschel, director of The End Of Meat documentary.
With talks and tasters happening throughout the day, it’s also a brilliant spot for stocking up on cruelty free cleansers, body butters and balms so bring a reusable bag for your haul.
Tickets for the event, sponsored by Earth Cafe Cork (their divine vegan pizza and salad special is pictured above) and Meanwell Wholefoods, are €8.70 plus booking fee on Eventbrite.
