THE CATFORD VEGAN FESTIVAL RETURNS!
Following the success of the inaugural Catford Vegan Festival last year, Catford Broadway will once again go car free and meat free and welcome south east London’s premier free all day vegan festival.
Created by the team behind Catford Food Market and in collaboration with vegan events team Plant Bass LDN the festival builds on the growing love and support of plant-based fayre and local shopping to create a fantastic day out.
Whether you fancy a vegan doner kebab courtesy of The Hippie Turks, Scandinavian open sandwiches from Daun’s Deli or vegan cake from MissFlits Bakes Vegan endorsed by one of the UK’s best known vegans Romesh Ranganathan, the day will show that meat and dairy free doesn’t mean taste free!
Other traders confirmed of this plant-based love in include The Green Grill’s burgers, The Red Tent’s Ethiopian cuisine, Filipino street food from Oh My Gulay, Caribbean jerk chik’n from Renee’s Plant Powered Kitchen, vegan cheese from Palace Culture and Beats & Grind serving vegan coffee plus ice cream from Dappa and seriously hot sauce from Pat & Pinky.
Catford Vegan Festival is also delighted to be the only opportunity this summer to buy Dipalicious Dips in person from 11 year old entrepreneur Omari McQueen. A huge success at last year’s festival, Omari is back with an expanded range of vegan dips, a host of awards and media appearances including ITV London under his belt since then.
If your kids aren’t inspired to set up their own business after meeting Omari, let them have some downtime on the day with our free kids’ activities with local artist Charlotte Gainey channelling their creativity.
Enjoy the urban picnic area and dance to all day live music from DJ Jey and local favourites DJ Da Lynne and Charisse Chikwiri aka Authentic Duplicate who will have perfect tunes for a summer Sunday in SE6.
Catford’s favourite pop up shop Catford Cornucopia will also be there selling the much coveted Catford hoodies and t-shirts alongside other traders offering vegan cosmetics and plants.
Everyone is welcome because ‘you don’t have to be vegan to enjoy vegan’.
