VegfestUK’s Vegan Events Calendar undergoes makeover for 2018

28th December 2017

As the number of vegan events in the UK continues to skyrocket, and demand for vegan products and information does likewise, the organisers of currently the UK’s biggest vegan festivals VegfestUK has undergone a significant makeover with its calendar for UK vegan events on its website to enable the UK vegan community to access vegan events more easily and conveniently than ever before.

Largely thanks to a growing number of independent vegan events organisers working their socks off to make a difference, 2017 sees altogether over 150 vegan events countrywide, and it is estimated that there will be at least 200 vegan festivals all over the UK in 2018. With numerous other community vegan events such as film screenings, pop-up dinners, markets, conferences, talks, marches and protests in the mix, 2018 promises to be another fascinating year for everyone interested in veganism.

The VegfestUK team added, “We are chuffed to unveil this new-look calendar to not only help the vegan community at large find easily the events that suit them the most, but in particular, the other heroic vegan events organisers that have fought tooth and nail for the dream of a vegan world at their doorstep in this country. What they have achieved simply cannot be understated – not only have those events attracted a healthy amount of visitors, but their events, along with our own, have also become important gateways to veganism for those looking for one-stop events to learn more about the lifestyle. We wish all the amazing vegan events organisers all the very best in 2018, with all their events doing amazingly well.”

New features of the Calendar

VegfestUK’s enhanced calendar for vegan events will include not only national and local vegan festivals (which host a number of stalls, talks, cookery demos and other activities), but also other community vegan events such as film screenings, pop-up dinners, markets, conferences, talks marches and protests. The new calendar also enables web users to search vegan events using either

  • the List View (with descriptive text and a featured image for each event)
  • the Month View (with vegan events listed on a monthly calendar),
  • the Map View (with the locations of vegan events indicated on a Google map), or
  • the Photo View (similar to List View but with bigger photos).

Further, on the calendar, users can use the filter bar to narrow their search for vegan events to only those

  • occurring in particular cities,
  • within certain price ranges,
  • in certain categories (e.g. festivals / talks / markets etc), or
  • organised by particular individuals / groups.

Users can moreover export vegan events that match their search criteria to their Google Calendar or iCal.
