About

Halifax’s Annual VegFest!

Bringing you the best Halifax has to offer in vegan food, products, education and entertainment.

There is so much to experience at a VegFest: browsing all the exhibitors, watching the presentations, taking part in the activities, purchasing raffle tickets for our gift baskets (always in support of a local animal sanctuary), eating your way through all the delicious food, and meeting new friends along the way!

VegFests are consistently popping up in many North American cities as people become aware of the positive environmental and health benefits of a plant-based lifestyle. Together, we can make 2019’s Halifax VegFest even bigger and better than previous years.

We exist to celebrate and promote healthy, sustainable, and compassionate living by sharing the benefits of a plant-based diet and vegan lifestyle with our community. Everyone is welcome to participate, regardless of their dietary choices. If you are curious to learn more about what vegans eat and why they choose not to use animal products, help yourself to some of our many brochures at the resource table. Share your photos from the day using the hashtag #HFXVegFest.

We hope this festival will highlight the benefits of a vegan lifestyle and inspire more positive change within this increasingly compassionate city we all love!

Love,
Your dedicated Halifax VegFest Team

 

THANK YOU

To all who supported and helped make Halifax VegFest 2018 an incredible success!

We have been nothing short of overwhelmed by the generosity of our community and the continuous flow of positive feedback from all who participated.

We broke a new record with over 2300 guests attending Halifax VegFest! T shirts, cookbooks, and many exhibitors were completely sold out! We fundraised over $1200 for North Mountain Animal Sanctuary, Wallflower Sanctuary, and Feed Nova Scotia from the VegFest raffle. We also collected over 26 boxes of food donations for Feed Nova Scotia and Parker Street Food & Furniture Bank!

We would like to give a huge thank you to all of our amazing guests, our incredible exhibitors, presenters, and our hard-working volunteers. We would also like to thank our sponsors Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market and Nova Scotia Humane Society. We could not have done any of this without your kindness and support!
