This weekend, as the UK celebrates the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, Bath is hosting a big vegan food festival.
Complete with 80 stalls selling everything from fashion to food to pet products, the festival is a celebration of plant-based living.
The festival will take place on June 4, which also happens to be the third day of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee long weekend celebrations. She will be the first British Monarch to celebrate the milestone.
Bath has played host to several vegan festivals over the years, but organizer Victoria Bryceson says 2022’s event will be “bigger and better.”
She told Somerset Live: “We received so much positive feedback last year. There is now so much demand that this festival is becoming a sell-out event.”

Vegan Sweet Tooth London, an Italian artisan patisserie and bakery, is just one of the food caterers attending the festival. Festival-goers can enjoy the company’s sweet treats, like blueberry and lavender and Oreo and chocolate cakes.
There’s No Catch will also be in attendance, serving up fishless fillets made with Vfish.
“The wonderful thing about the event is that it’s for everyone whatever your lifestyle,” continued Bryceson.
“Just come along and bring your friends for a great, fun day out,” they added. “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.”
The event, which will take place at the Bath Pavillion, will also host workshops, talks, and stalls run by animal welfare charities.
Tickets are available here and range from Standard to VIP. The latter includes a goody bag of vegan products (including a sample of Hownd’s plant-based dog food and London Nootropics coffee).
