Vegan Events: London Vegan Summer Fest 2017

After a great day at Veggie World last month, the next event in my food festival line-up for 2017 was London Vegan Summer Fest.

This was a festival I’d not heard of before this year but stumbled upon online and as entry was only £5 on the door I figured, why not?

Held in a function room at the Ibis Hotel in Earl’s Court, the festival was smaller than most others I’ve been to but had a friendly, intimate vibe.

Of course, I get most excited over the food at these events but there were some great fashion and beauty stalls on display too.

 

I picked up some cute, natural soaps from Organik Orangutan whose organic beauty treats are all palm oil free.

I have a weakness for vegan baked goods so along with my festival favourite banana bread, I couldn’t go past these insane cupcakes by SweetPBakes.

Fromt he slightly overwhelming range on display I bought a Unicorn cupcake because LOOK HOW PRETTY THEY WERE!

The actual cake was a vanilla sponge and super-delicious. Yes, I felt a little sick after eating the sugary masterpiece but it was totally worth it.

There were so many amazing cake stands and I honestly had to restrain myself from buying from them all. Instead, I just gawked and took photos.

 

I can rarely leave a festival without buying some kind of savoury sauce and this event was no exception with the Saucy Marinade from Zim’s Tribe making it into my bag. From four heat levels, I chose the hottest and can’t wait to marinate some tofu or make a curry with it!

When it came to fresh festival food, it was pretty hard to narrow down my choices there as well. I settled on a curry pie (sans mash because I’m a weirdo who hates mash), topped with vegan gravy, fried onions and mango chutney.

It was stupidly good and I wish I remembered the name of the vendor so I could hunt them down. (If anyone who went to the festival knows, please do tell!)

To cool down my slightly burning tongue, I treated myself to a vegan “froyo”. The frozen yogurt (more like sorbet, really) was tropical flavoured and they had an array of treats to top it with. I went a little nuts on rainbow goodies…

As if I hadn’t purchased enough naughty food, I caved at a vegan treats stand and bought a vego bar (my favourite vegan chocolate) and a “birthday cake” cookie simply because it fit with my childish awesome, rainbow food theme of the day!

Here’s my complete haul from the festival, most of which I bought but there were a few freebies from Clearspring chucked in:

My favourite purchase of the day was probably my adorable new tote bag.

The festival was on for one day only in London but you can catch the two-day Vegan Summer Fest Brighton event from 3rd-4th June 2017.

As I’m obsessed with festival food, what’s your favourite?
