Come to the green side, we have (vegan) cookies.
In 2023, we don’t really need to be lured into trying new vegan flavours. Vegan and vegetarian restaurants have sprung up all over Athens, as Mediterranean diet staples include several delicious plant-based dishes. Vegan Life Festival has grown significantly, too. Organised since 2016, it’s become the most attended vegan festival in Europe. Whether you're already a pro at leafy greens or are just dipping your toes into the world of plant-based meals, Vegan Life Festival brings two days packed with exciting stuff: hands-on cooking workshops, insightful panels, a vegan products bazaar, live music, and even a speed dating event for a chance to make some new pals who share your passion for cruelty-free eats (or even find your vegan soulmate). The organisation obviously has a strong focus on animal rights, but they’ve also got their eye on the bigger picture: initiatives that collect food for those in need or migrant kitchens set up by the Greek Forum of Migrants, which will also be there.
