Vegan Fairs, Festivals + Markets UK, 2017 / 2018

Last updated: 12/12/17

When I started this list, I had no idea there were so many vegan events in the UK – this list is long… and growing! If you know of any more vegan fairs, festivals or markets, or spot any that have been cancelled, relocated or rescheduled, please let us know, so we can keep this list up to date.

As much as we would love to visit every single vegan event in the UK, we’re just not that fortunate, so this is a list of suggestions, rather than recommendations!
