Tampere, Finland VegFest 2012: May 18th – 20th

Postby loveliberate » Wed Mar 14, 2012 2:48 am

I would really love to go to this one... Anyone want to send me there for a birthday or any other good reason present? :D

Vegfest 2012, the biggest vegan festival in Finland, is coming again to Tampere Central Square Market and its' surroundings.

Vegfest, held on 18th-20th of May 2012 makes you familiar with vegetarian life!

Once again there will be a big event tent at Central Market Square, where interesting, various program can be enjoyed along with the delicious treats from the Vegfest café.

The premises will include promotion stands from different businesses and voluntary organizations, insipiring art and colorful green-, and handicrafts' area.

Delicious food is of course in the center of the weekend. The area will be filled with aromas and new recipe tips. Various food stalls are ready to serve the customers with their diverse menus. Also free samples are offered: food bloggers, companies and cook book authors are presenting mouth watering tastings.

Aside from the main festivities at Vegfest 2012, additional program is organized in the nearby area. Take a look into the program; some sneak-peeks are presented already during this year!

Vegfest 2012 has no entry fee. Our most important values are again fair trade and ecological methods. Locality, small entrepreneurship, voluntary work and accessibility are also close to our heart.

Welcome to get familiar with a delicious vegan world!

Most likely we are going. :D But probably just for a one day, I think there isn't so much activities for our 5-y daughter and hotels aren't free of charge either. :wink:

I'll probably be there the whole weekend, helping out.
