Back in 2015, the Whangarei Vegans made the decision to go ahead with hosting Whangarei’s first ever Vegan Expo. It was held at the Whangarei Intermediate School hall on Saturday 29th October, 2016. To the organisers’ surprise, it attracted close to 1000 attendees. The success of that first event has inspired the organising team to journey into the experience again by hosting Vegan Expo 2017. The event is being held at Forum North on Saturday 25th November, 2017.
Christchurch has been running the Vegetarian Expo annually since 2006. The event became fully vegan in 2012, though this year is the first year it has been named the Vegan Expo. The Vegan Expo is our Big Day Out where all are welcome to come and share a day with us, enjoy great vegan food, watch top veggie chefs display their cooking secrets, learn about vegan living and enjoy celebrating cruelty-free pro-planet living with Christchurch’s vegan and vegetarian community. Whether you are vegan or vegetarian or not, you will love the variety of foods and entertainment on offer. Christchurch’s Vegan Expo will be held on Sunday October 8th at the New Zealand Air Force Museum in Wigram.
This website www.veganexpo.org.nz has been created as a central launchpad so you can find out more about both events.
