The most anticipated alternative local gastronomic festival is getting ready to take place in Alicante

On October 20th and 21st, Alicante will host the fifth edition of their own animal-free food festival, ‘Vegan Fest Alicante’.

The aim of the event is both to raise awareness of animal rights and the problems of mass animal farming, and to offer a taste of some of the foods that don’t rely on animal products, to prove that everyone can easily become vegan, or just take steps towards a healthier lifestyle through the occasional meat-free meal.

During the event, there will be conferences, food workshops, information stands, music, exhibitions and much more, and is open and welcoming to all, from vegans to the most hardened carnivore, for the free and informative intersectional fiesta.

You can follow the build-up on the Facebook event page, 5 Vegan Fest Alicante 2018. The full schedule of activities will be released nearer the time, but for now, just set the weekend aside in your diary and be sure to come along for a taste of something different.
