Manchester Vegan Festival 2023 returns with food, fashion and gifts at Bowlers Exhibition Centre

The Bowlers Exhibition Centre will host around 80 stalls this year.

Manchester Vegan Festival is returning to the Bowlers Exhibition Centre in Stretford for 2023.

The popular event will feature around 80 stalls and is open to everyone, whether you are already vegan, flexitarian, vegetarian or just looking to reduce your meat intake and increase the amount of plant-based food in your diet. As well as a wide variety of traders, there will be talks, recipe ideas and information available on going vegan.

Among the tasty food offerings will be world food stalls plus more traditional fayre like vegan fish and chips, burgers and hotdogs. And aside from food and drink, there will be traders selling vegan clothes, jewellery and handbags, plus gifts, bath products, pet treats. There will also be charities and not-for-profit organisations attending including animal welfare charity Miracle’s Mission, which is receiving funds from admission fees to the festival.

Vegan Events UK founder, Victoria Bryceson, said: “I’m really excited about next year’s festivals. We’ve had such amazing feedback from everyone, I’m expecting them to be sell-out events. The events will raise valuable funds for my charity, Miracle’s Mission, helping us fund our rescuing of disabled dogs, their care and their adoption.”

Manchester Vegan Festival will be at Bowlers Exhibition Centre on Sunday 12 March 2023 from 10.30am to 4.30pm. Entry is £5 and can be paid on the door (with under 16s free) or £15 for VIP tickets in advance from Eventbrite to include fast track entry and a goody bag full of vegan products, samples, discounts and offers.
