Like others, Scotland has also experienced the surge in veganism. Now they’re set to get a brand new vegan festival based in the city of Falkirk.
Love vegan will take place at Falkirk Stadium on October 7-8. The event is attracting 40 different companies which range from food to clothing. There will also be a bouncy castle and face painting for families.
The event has been organized by Kirsty and Andy Ure, who described the support of the event as being “phenomenal”.
Kirsty said: “Falkirk has a great vegan scene, the Land and Sea in Polmont runs a weekly vegan night and businesses like Coffee on Wooer and Northstar happily cater for vegans.
“When I turned vegan I got all the usual questions, where do you get protein, and do you just eat salad?
“But in all honesty, it’s been an easy transition, and you can still eat vegan versions of all the food you love.”
The festival will offer a range of vegan food with fans especially looking forward to trying vegan variations of fried chicken, haggis and pulled pork pies.
