Korea's Seoul will be hosting its fourth vegan festival this weekend.
Located at the Seoul Innovation Center in Eunpyeong-gu on Sunday, the event will showcase a wide range of plant-based cuisine, as well as cruelty-free cosmetics and vegan goods.
The festival, which is free, will be donating five percent of profits to animal welfare.
Vegan Festival Korea will feature 84 stalls run by vegan chefs and eco-friendly startups.
On the festival day, violonist Kim Bitnalyoonmi and musician Kwon Bom will be performing.
"We hope the vegan festival works as a bridge to connect more people to understanding the concept of environment-friendly culture," said Jeon Hyo-kwan, official from the Seoul Innovation Center.
Previous vegan festivals were attended by a total of 6,000 people, according to organizers.
Vegan Festival Korea will be open on October 15 from 11am to 6m.
