Attendance has continued to increase every year, attracting a diverse cross-section of the community. The thousands who attend include those who are curious to learn more about cruelty-free alternatives to meat, eggs and dairy products, as well as vegetarians, vegans and allergy sufferers.

What is the Christchurch Vegan Society?

The Christchurch Vegan Society is a registered charity that organises events and groups for our community such as the annual Vegan Expo, Vegan Camp, the Vegan Ball, the monthly Vegan Night Mākete (market), restaurant meals and pot lucks. We also have groups like Team Vegan and Veggie Puffs (one of Christchurch’s longest running GLBTQIA groups), send out a fortnightly newsletter, run social media, offer talks to schools and community groups, and advocate for our community. We welcome all who are interested in cruelty-free, environmentally-friendly plant-based living, whether they are vegan, vegetarian or neither.
