A shout out to all vegans who might be travelling to Bali in October! It’s time to gear up for the 3rd Annual Bali Vegan Festival 2017. And for those who aren’t around Bali during that time, doesn’t it just boost your morale when you read about events like these?
The Bali Vegan Festival is an annual 3-day event held at Paradiso Ubud and the surrounding area from 6-8 October, 2017. It celebrates animals, the environment and the earth and is a great event for vegans and those who are exploring a vegan lifestyle. The festival aims to inspire, educate and enlighten people regarding an alternative way of living.
The festival will be held at the Paradiso Ubud, which is a one-of a kind space in Bali that boasts of the world’s first organic vegetarian & vegan cinema. Paradiso is adjacent to Earth Café & Market, Bali’s original organic plant-based eatery.
The Bali Vegan Festival partners with Taksu Spa for internationally trained and accredited massage by wellness and beauty practitioners. It also has two healthy eating restaurants and multiple yoga spaces that are centrally located, but away from city’s buzz.
The Bali Vegan Festival was established by Down To Earth Bali in 2015 to inspire people to choose a healthier, compassionate, ethical lifestyle through plant based eating.
