Organized by AnimaNaturalis, the event aims to raise awareness of animal rights, promote an animal, and support its campaigns.
Founded in 2003, AnimaNaturalis is a non-profit organization working to implement, protect and raise awareness of animal rights in Spain and Latin America.
A cruelty-free lifestyle
VegFest BCN 2023 is sponsored by cosmetics brand LUSH; nonprofit organization Vegfund, empowering vegan activists worldwide; a well-fed world, a nonprofit advocating for plant-based solutions for a hungry world; and vegan beer company BdeGust.
The festival includes conferences revolving around veganism, concerts, DJ sets, and activities for all ages.
Cosmetic and vegan food stands will offer 100% plant-based food and products. Participant brands include Väcka, an innovative vegan cheese startup, The Veggie Point, and Veganashi.
“We want to demonstrate that a cruelty-free lifestyle is more than compatible with fun and leisure,” Cristina Ibáñez, the event coordinator, told La Vanguardia.
