Is vegfest what used to be bristol vegan fayre?

I used to always go to Bristol vegan fayre and Christmas without cruelty but since moving to Sheffield I haven't been to any
Basically anywhere a drive away is unlikley to happen (I don't drive, and I'd probally go on my own, which isn't so much fun), and there aren't many up here, but I miss them - anyone thinking about going deffinatly should! I always find new foods to buy, and have lots of fun spoiling myself on chocolate/sweets/cakes/curry

Yep, vegfest is what used to be the eco veggie fayre. I went to the Bristol one two years ago, and the Brighton one last year. Both were fantastic. I've also been to the Viva! roadshow a couple of times. I'd definitely urge people to go to these kind of events. Free food samples, finding new products, meeting lots of new veg*n people, getting information, getting involved with some activism... They're awesome.

If you're in Sheffield, there's a Manchester one coming this year which will be easily accessible by train. No date for it yet, though.

My favourite thing about bristol vegfest is that there's lots of our doors space so you can browse all the stores, and then relax for the afternoon with some food/etc, and stay for the music if you want, so you can make a day of it. The christmas without cruelty one was pretty packed so it was more like, get in, get all the good stuff, and then go - but I prefered the stalls generally because it was more vegan/AR centric which is really what I'm there for, bristol had a bigger range of envrionmental/health based stuff I seem to remember.

How big is the manchester one compared to vegfest/ego veggie fayre/etc? I might look into it this year as it's only a 45min train journey, or just to plan trips to family around vegan fayres
I'll keep an eye on this thread for a date

Sheffield Animal Friends are putting on this event on Saturday 24th March 2012, the Food Fair will run from 11am 4pm at the Quaker Meeting House, 10 St. James Street, Sheffield S1 2EW. And it's Free Entry!

The Fair is mainly aimed at attracting non-vegans to come along to sample free vegan food to find out about how delicious vegan food can be, and also to find out about the many benefits for animals, people and the planet of veganism. Though if you're already vegan please feel free to come along to meet/network with other vegans and/or introduce your friends and family to veganism more fully (and perhaps they'll make the change too!) There will be a wide range of delicious free vegan food on offer, mostly made by group members but there will also be dishes and tasters of products from vegan friendly companies such as Vegusto, Meridian, Plamil, Fry's to try.

There will also be S.A.F Vegan & Animal Rights Info stalls and a Doris Banham Dog Rescue Stall (www.dogsos.co.uk) We'll also be having talks, one on a general intro to veganism, one on veganic organic growing (www.veganorganic.net) and one on healthy nutrion from a dietition from the Hallamshire hospital. Then there will be some cooking demos and showings of the Vegan Society 'Making the Connection' film will happen throughout the day and there'll also have a raffle.

Please also see our website (www.sheffieldaf.org.uk) or the fb event page for further info: https://www.facebook.com/events/102978166495509/

Hope to see you there! :-D
