There is a Vancouver VegFest in the summer along Granville street downtown. Animal Advocacy Camp is coming up March 22 and 23rd.

Thanks for the reply & for letting me know about the camp - it looks good! http://www.animaladvocacycamp.ca

Sadly, the Vancouver VegFest info doesn't seem to have been updated since last year. Do you know for sure that there will be VVF this year & if so, do you know of somewhere online with info about it?

The Vancouver one is really small and doesn't seem terribly well-organized so you may not find info about it til the summer.

j-dub/All,
Do you happen to know of any other similar events that are definitely happening this year in... actually, anywhere in Canada other than Toronto? I've been looking around online but so far the big TO is the only place that seems to have anything confirmed. Considering your mayor, I'm not sure even that one is safe!! ;-p

I believe TO is the biggest in North America and it's GREAT. I went last year and it was fantastic. I've heard good things about Victoria's but I think Sarah Kramer does the bulk of the organizing and I don't know if it will be on this due to her health stuff. So...short answer: no.

I just posted info on this years Victoria Vegan Fest and VegFest Vancouver!

There are also 2 other new for 2014 VegFest's happening south of the border in Spokane, Washington: http://www.inveg.org/vegfest.html and even further south in Bend, Oregon: http://vegnetbend.org/vegfest/

Heck, even Portland has a wee lil' shindig: http://nwveg.org/vegfest

It would be lovely to have folks from BC & beyond come down to join in the fun!

Also, has anyone heard of other such events coming up out here in Cascadia (= SW CA + NW US)?
