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.
