Adelaide’s Vegan Festival is set to go ahead next month after it was given the green light by health authorities.

The festival will be among the first major events held in the state since the beginning of the COVID-19 was felt in Australia in March.

Restrictions on the event mean that the maximum number of people permitted through the gates is likely to be curbed.

COVID-19 restrictions will also see alcohol banned from this year’s event.

Last year, around 16,000 people attended the two-day festival which features vegan-focused cooking demonstrations, workshops, food trucks and market stalls.

The Vegan Festival takes place in Rymill Park on Saturday October 31 and Sunday November 1, tickets cost $10 for adults.

The following weekend will also see the return of Adelaide’s popular CheeseFest, which will this year be rebranded as Gather & Graze.


This year’s event will take place at the Market Shed on Holland.

News that the two events will go ahead comes following the announcement that West End Brewery’s popular Christmas Lights will not go ahead this year.
