During the covid epidemic anything that would bring people together was cancelled, everyone had to be socially distanced, everyone had to keep to themselves. Now, post epidemic, group and mass events are starting to happen again. Outdoor festivals such as Glastonbury are taking place, indoor concerts and shows are selling tickets and selling out. For vegans too, everything is back on, with Vegfest, markets and other events happening all over the country. But, what about the kids, especially young vegans? Vegan Kids, based in Dorset, UK, started as an online community in the second year of covid. On Facebook it was a place for vegan kids of all ages to connect, a place where they could share, create, learn, make friends and have fun with other people that think in the same way that they do. This moved on to zoom calls with activities and chat, but now the Vegan kids festival is going ahead, live and for three days.
This Is A Proper Festival
The Vegan Kids Festival is an event designed especially for kids and families. There will be music, food, talks, yoga, forest school, dance, activism, there will be loads, something for everyone. This will be the first ever live Vegan Kids Festival in England and it is taking place on the weekend of the 22nd - 24th July 2022, at
The festival will be bringing together vegan children and their families from all over the UK and beyond. They have visitors travelling from as far as Germany and Switzerland in a 3 day 2 night camping event. This will be 3 packed days of absolute fun; the main stage will be the central hub with lots of live entertainment. In the beautiful woodland area, you will be able to enjoy the outdoor cinema or silent disco. At night the campfire will be lit and a local astronomer will give a tour of the night sky. More outdoor activities will include a giant inflatable science dome. A wellness zone for those that want to chill out will host yoga and a gong bath with LED hula hoop class at dusk. Omari McQueen, the UK’s very own teen vegan chef, and Freya Cox from the Great British Bake Off, will also be there.
