What Is Vegtoria?

Each year, cities across Canada and around the world celebrate vegan culture and community by hosting veg fests. Victoria is excited to be taking part this year by introducing Vegtoria: Victoria’s Veg Fest, organized by the Vancouver Island Vegan Association! This day will be a celebration of vegan food and community and will offer exciting food, booths, vendors, non-profits, contests and speakers! Think, big vegan party! Everyone is invited to come and experience the values that we share as a community which celebrates the lives of non-human animals by not consuming them.

We want to acknowledge that we organize and practice our culture on unceeded Coast Salish Territory.
