Veganism was the biggest food trend of 2018 globally and it continues to rise around the world. In Singapore too, vegan activities increased manifold in the last year or two.

The festival arims to bring together the best vegan delights in Singapore, across cuisines and culture. Foodies (vegan or not) can expect a plethora of food experiences ranging from local dishes such as vegan biryani to Japanese and Greek fine dining.

Attendees can sample vegan products, food and beverages at the market stalls on the day itself.

Besides encouraging vegans to explore fresh options, the festival embraces people of all food preferences (vegans, vegetarians, omnivores, flexitarian and vegan-curious) and would like to offer interesting alternatives to those who are curious about the vegan lifestyle. As such, it will be a food paradise that opens avenues, offers options and showcases an ethical opportunity without being judgmental.
