Animal Friends announce even bigger, more interesting and creative Croatian vegan festival
- Veganmania in Zagreb, Trg ban Jelacica, September 5-6, 2014
Over 40,000 visitors, 32 performers and 75 exhibitors from last year’s ZeGeVege festival are guaranteed to be at this year’s 7th ZeGeVege Festival of Sustainable Living.
Friday September 5, 2014 (9 A.M. - 9 P.M.) and Saturday September 6, 2014 (9 A.M. - 7 P.M.) are good days to be in Zagreb, because it is time for a festival that celebrates life! This international event is interesting, fun and educational, and important in promoting sustainable living, i.e. the welfare of people, the environment and animals.
Over 80 domestic and foreign exhibitors of healthy food, eco products and cosmetics that have not been tested on animals will be at this year’s two day ZeGeVege Festival for the first time. The festival will be visited on Friday by Zagreb Mayor Milan Bandic, and on Saturday by Croatian president Ivo Josipovic.
Numerous musicians, dance groups and performers that support sustainable living and animal rights will rotate each day, during a 22-hour musical and entertainment program on stage and throughout Trg bana Jelacica where ZegeVege Festival is held.
Restaurants offering vegan meals, free beauty and hair treatments, a variety of sampling and promotional sales, cooking workshops, eco-innovations, lectures, a children's corner with workshops for children, screenings of documentaries, a raffle and the like guarantee to all visitors that the seventh ZeGeVege Festival will offer them good entertainment and a two-day gathering, with the possibility of obtaining information about sustainable living.
This unique festival in Croatia, where products exclusively of plant-based origin are exhibited and supported, promotes sustainable living, and a way of life that does not harm the environment, the life of other animals and the welfare of other people. In the long term, this way of life enables the survival of plant and animal species, biodiversity, natural balance and peaceful coexistence between all living beings on the planet.
This year, exhibitors from Germany, Austria, Slovenia and Serbia are also expected. All visitors will receive an educational brochure, and the work of non-profit organizations and environmental family farmers will also be presented. ZeGeVege Festival is part of the international event Veganmania held in Vienna, Munich and fifteen other European cities.
