Dublin, the capital of the Republic of Ireland, is to host a two-day long vegan festival this September.

This year’s Dublin VegFest, dubbed as the country’s largest vegan food and lifestyle event, will take place on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 September at Griffith College on the South Circular Road.

General admission starts from €12.13 – or guests can purchase a vegan goodie bag with their tickets for €30.72. Children under 12 can enter for free.

‘Feed your mind’

Dublin Vegfest wrote on Instagram: “Vegfest peeps! Foodie? Veggie? Meat-loving vegan-curious? Everyone is welcome to feast and drink the day away over the weekend with us!

“Find your food. Feed your body. Feed your mind at our packed schedule of speakers and events.”

‘Stars of the plant-based world’

The festival’s website states: “Our Vegan Food Village will have vegan cheeses, vegan fried chick’n, barbecue, falafels, burgers, hot dogs, pizzas, ice cream, chocolates, healthy salads, cakes, and drinks. There’ll be cruelty-free cosmetics, body care and clothing producers inside too.

“Activities on the day include food demo’s, talks by experts covering all aspects of vegan plant-based lifestyle featuring stars of the plant-based world, award-winning bloggers, live music, fun events and more.”

While the full line-up has not yet been released, last year’s guest speakers included Dr. Milton Mills, who featured in the popular vegan documentary What The Health, and Patrik Baboumian, strongman competitor and former bodybuilder.
