Edinburgh has a vibrant vegan scene, with lots of events happening in Scotland’s capital every month. Whether you’re into activism, supper clubs or just fancy a browse around a vegan-friendly market, there is pretty much something for everyone.
If you want your vegan event listed on this page, drop us a line and we’ll see what we can do. Bear in mind, we normally need at least 10 days notice to promote an event in any meaningful way.
Here’s what’s going on over the next couple of weeks…
