After a fantastically well attended festival last year Farplace Animal Rescue returns to Chester for the second year!
Sunday 19th August will see The Queen Hotel and The Carriage Shed on City Road near the train station bustling with activity for Chester's second Vegan festival. There will be stalls across the two sites serving delicious homemade food with global flavours, drinks, clothing, accessories, toiletries and cosmetics; all vegan and cruelty free. Additionally many animal and environmental charities will also have stalls to give out information on the work they do. Alongside the stalls there will also be a programme of guest speakers and educational films to engage and inspire!
Last year was a first for Chester hosting the Vegan Festival event and it was a tremendous success with two thousand people visiting over the day.
This year all the stall spaces are fully booked with local small ethical businesses and similar numbers are expected for this one day celebration of all things Vegan.
Veganism has grown by almost 400% over this last decade and there has been a real need for these fairs and festivals as a place for likeminded and vegan curious people to come together. Veganism is the fastest growing lifestyle choice of this new century and many people are adapting a more ethical and cruelty free life.
Farplace Animal Rescue is a not for profit charity and animal sanctuary which rescues and re-homes animals in need. Farplace have been expanding their vegan fairs over the last couple of years as a method to fundraise for the charity and enable them to rescue more animals in need.
The fair opens at 10.30 for general admission and costs £3 on the door for entry to both sites. Under 16s go free
