Huge new vegan festival comes to Bath this July

9 July 2021

An exciting new market showcasing the best plant-based goodies in the region is set for its Bath debut on Saturday 10th July 2021.

Organised by Vegan Events UK, the Bath Vegan Festival 2021 has twice had to be postponed due to Covid-19 restrictions. It’s now all systems go for the festival, which will take place outdoors at Odd Down Sports Ground from 10.30am to 4.30pm. And if you miss it, there’ll be another event held in November at Bath Pavilion.

There will be more than 60 stalls to browse, showcasing everything from animal-free fashion and cosmetics to pet products and homewares. There will also be talks, workshops and entertainment on the day.

And of course, you can expect a real gastronomic treat, with plenty of vegan street food specialists to choose from for lunch. This includes vegan hotdogs from VDOGS, the Greek Vegan Deli, and Those Vegan Pizza Guys.
