Listen up vegans; there is more to rejoice this year with not one but two vegan festivals scheduled to be held in Bali this year. This year marks the 4th edition of the Bali Vegan Festival at Ubud and the 1st edition of the Bali Vegan Festival at Canggu. Even if you aren’t vegan, this is a great chance to learn about the ethical, health and environmental causes related to a vegan lifestyle. The festival is open to all, vegans, vegetarians, omnivores, flexitarians and the vegan-curious. The Bali Vegan Festival aims to demonstrate that vegan food preparation is simple, delicious, healthy and that it is the catalyst for a more peaceful and sustainable world.
As always, there will be a three-day festival at Ubud that shall be held from 5-7 October, 2018. First incepted and held by Down to Earth Bali in 2015, the festival aims to start a conversation about veganism through talks, workshops, cooking demos and discussions. It goes all out in equipping each participant with ample tools to be able to live and exemplify what a cruelty free lifestyle looks like.
This year, the surf village of Canggu shall also witness this wonderful event from 12-14 October, 2018. This is the first time it will be held here.
For tickets to both the festivals combined or separately, buy them online here.
