A huge vegan festival will welcome independent chefs and plant-based food companies from across the north to Manchester in a huge celebration of the vegan lifestyle.

Bringing over 100 vegan exhibitors together, the Northern Vegan Festival will return to the city this summer – landing at Bowler’s Exhibition Centre on Sunday, 14 May 2022. 

All for charity, it will unite hot street food sellers and market stalls under one roof for a day-long vegan festival, with all proceeds from ticket sales going to support animal welfare charities thanks to the event being staffed entirely by volunteers.

If you’ve made a change in your diet this year, or you’re a long-standing vegan eager to explore the newest ethical and sustainable products available to you, this market sounds like an absolute must.

But that’s not all. After all, being vegan isn’t just about what you eat, it’s a lifestyle and, to that end, there’ll also be stalls selling vegan-friendly jewellery, various crafts, items of clothing, beauty and skincare products, homeware, candles, charity merchandise and more. 

As for vegan drinks, expect sellers with everything you can think of. – ranging from juices and smoothies to coffee and bottles of something a little bit stronger too.

There’ll be a huge selection of world caterers on hand too – so you can enjoy some quality vegan street food as you shop, and free samples at many stalls so you can try before you buy. 

Think stalls selling nibbles like stuffed vine leaves, olives, Turkish delight, sundried tomatoes, chilli peanutes and sea salt cashews and pickled garlic; raw chocolate, vegan carribean food, vish and chips, pizzas and more.
