Dublin Vegfest is back with a two-day celebration of a vegan lifestyle. It is the country’s biggest vegan food event with a large outdoor area, Speakers Area, Vegan Food Village and Chill Zone.
Expect vegan cheeses, falafels, burgers, hot dogs, pizzas, ice cream, chocolates, healthy salads, cakes and drinks. There’ll be cruelty-free cosmetics and body care producers too. Diet and nutrition talks by experts, demo’s, performances & lots more! Thousands are expected to flock down over the two days.
You don’t have to be vegan to enjoy the event! Everyone is welcome to try new foods, take a talk or hangout in a super friendly environment. Activities on the day include demo’s, talks by diet experts and stars of the plant-based world, award-winning bloggers, live music.
One of the keynote speakers at this year’s festival is Dr Milton Mills, MD who earned his medical degree at Stanford University School of Medicine and completed an Internal Medicine residency at Georgetown University Hospital. A major focus of his patient advisement, as well as his lecturing, is the use of nutritional measures to reduce the risk of major chronic diseases.
Dr Mills notes that scientific research literature shows plant-based diets as supporting better overall immune system function, and during work with HIV-positive and AIDS patients at clinics, he’s observed that those who go vegetarian seem to improve, with increased energy and higher T-cell counts. He therefore hopes throughout the future to examine further the relationships between diet and immune functionality, particularly the effects of plant-based eating choices upon outcomes for HIV-positive patients.
Dublin Vegfest takes place on Saturday-Sunday, September 22 and 23, from 11 am – 6 pm at the Griffith Conference Centre, South Circular Road, Dublin 8.
Tickets are on sale at Eventbrite (€10 ex. booking fee).
