Viva! will be staging its second festival in Bristol later this year, following last year's huge success.
The Viva! Vegan Festival, which is set to return to a new, bigger venue at the University of Bristol's student union, will feature over 100 stallholders selling a host of animal-free food, cosmetics, and other goods.
Taking place on December 9, the event will also showcase a range of cookery demos from Michelin-listed Acorn Kitchen's veggie chef, as well as a class about vegan cheese making by Mel's Kindness Kitchen - among others.
Viva! founder and director Juliet Gellatley said: "Interest in veganism has continued to soar globally and shows no signs of slowing down.
"Our vegan festivals are a fantastic way of bringing people together and showcasing the benefits of a vegan lifestyle.
"Regardless of dietary choices we want everyone to come along and see just how wonderful vegan food can be – especially as this is our home town of Bristol!"
Among stallholders, big names such as Spotless Leopard, Nutcessity, and Mr Nice Pie, as well as Herbivorous (who offers vegan 'doner kebabs') will headline the festival.
There will also be stalls offering information and support for people interested in becoming vegan, and a free kids craft area.
