A local offshoot of the global VegFest movement, the goal of London's festival is to “branch out” to others in an effort to “grow” awareness of the impacts our lifestyle choices have on animals the planet, and our health!


HISTORY

The seeds of change for London’s vegan community were originally sowed in 2013 when VegFest London’s founder, Krista Kankula, attended the Niagara VegFest and Toronto Veg Food Fest and realized the Forest City needed one of its own. Organized by a dedicated group of volunteers, VegFest London is an annual festival which prominently showcases vegan food, health, clothing and beauty products. The festival’s educational aims are further achieved through its noteworthy expert speaker panel, live cooking demonstrations and resource area. Londoners of all ages are welcome to attend.  

Since our first event in 2014, VegFest London has welcomed more than 30,000 attendees, with our largest crowds ever of 7,500 people assembling at VegFest London 2016 & 2017.

FOUNDER

KRISTA KANKULA

After going vegan 7 years ago and visiting Niagara VegFest and Toronto Veg Food Fest, Krista was inspired to bring a similar festival to London. Krista is the founder of the festival and served as Chair from 2014-17. You can usually find her covered in paint and eating vegan poutine.
