Vegan festivals, markets and conferences

The number of special vegan events in Australia is increasing every year. Below we list the major events occurring in Australia. Most are on every year, although monthly vegan markets are starting to appear.

These are all individually organised events and are run by incredibly hard working teams of volunteers. Please get in touch with the organisers if you would like to help out.

If you know of any other major events in Australia please get in touch and let us know.

As well as these major events, we also list hundreds of other upcoming events, from vegan outreach, street activism, talks and films to dinners, picnics, walks, cooking classes and many more.
