VGF is Great Fun - Vegan Event in Bangalore

Hubby and I have been super busy over the last week making preparations for a vegan fair that we're organising in Bangalore. It's the first of its kind and all very exciting. :) There will be a bunch of vendors selling all kinds of delicious vegan foods. We'll also have a few vegan non-food goodies for sale. And some free demos.

  1. hi maam,
    i want to be a part of this and contribute towards the good work that you all are doing. i want to know if there is any kind of help that i can do ..
    i would happily put all my efforts to make this event a successful one.

    1. Thank you for offering your help. The best way for you to help us now is to spread the word about this event. We need more people to attend and have the food to make the event a grand success.

  2. Wow! That sounds like an incredibly fun event! Even more awesome that you are putting it together. SO wish I could attend! xx

    1. Somer, it would've been great to have you here!

    2. Hi Susmitha,
      Missed this event. Would like to know if you plan on having another such fair. Pls add my email to your database for the next time -swarnavenkat (at) gmail (dot) com. Would love to inform myself of vegan alternatives, though I am a vegetarian still.

    3. Hi Swarna, the event was overwhelmingly successful so we definitely plan to have more of them in the future. The next one will be in a few months, I'll definitely let you know when we decide on the dates.

      Meanwhile, if you're on Facebook, then do join our Vegan Bangalore group. We have other activities, primarily a monthly potluck, which you might be interested to join.
