The Waihi Vegetarian Festival is celebrating World Vegan Day today and reminds you that everyone (even your friendly dog on a leash) is invited along to their annual Vegetarian Festival this Sunday from 9.30 am at the Waihi International Academy on Landlyst Road.

World Vegan Day is an annual event celebrated by vegans around the world every 1 November. Veganism for humans, non-human animals, and the natural environment are celebrated through activities such as setting up stalls, hosting potlucks, and planting memorial trees.

The event was established in 1994 by Louise Wallis, then Chair of The Vegan Society in the United Kingdom, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the founding of the organisation and the coining of the terms “vegan” and “veganism”.
