More and more people turn vegetarian for different reasons all over the world, and more and more people discover the vegetarian cuisine not only because they turn vegetarian – but because it has so much delicious food to offer.
If you’re in Oslo May 7th and 8th, you can experience two whole days dedicated to vegetarian and vegan food and lifestyle – cooking classes, lectures, inspiration and of course tasting! Oslo Vegetarian Festival is a rather young festival, and was arranged for the first time in 2010.
Cooking classes and lectures will be held in Norwegian, and you can find the program here once it is ready. However, there will be a vegan market hall featuring everything from food, clothes, shoes and natural skin care, to books and fair trade products from around the world. In the market hall, you will also have the opportunity to talk to people from organizations within animal rights, fair trade, vegetarian food producers and vegetarian and vegan associations. There will also be lots of food options – all vegan.
The price is 120 NOK for a day pass, 200 NOK for the two-day pass – all activities included, but food is not included. Whether you just have the slightest interest in tasty food or you are a hard-core vegan, you will probably find something of interest here!
The venue for the festival is DogA, it is about a 15 minute walk from the city centre. Remember to bring cash if you plan to do some shopping.
