Just a handy list of vegan and vegan-friendly events including fundraisers, panel discussions, demonstrations, food justice focused conversations, race and food, amongst others. I endeavor to only add events from groups and organizations that I know have reasonable community accountability and offer safe spaces.
Events are primarily in Toronto, but also include events around Ontario, Northwestern New York State, Northern Michigan, and other places that are a short(ish) drive away.
I try and include venue accessibility information with every post. Not all events are accessible, but I will include that information wherever possible.
For local farmers market information please visit The Toronto Farmers Market Network for listings. Several Farmers Markets have specialized vegan vendors, in addition to offering all the beautiful local produce grown right here in Ontario.

Toronto Vegetarian Food Festival
September 11, 2015 @ 4:00 PM - September 13, 2015 @ 7:00 PMFree
“It’s a food festival first. Both local and international chefs will wow you with delicious dishes, desserts, drinks, and everything else under the sun. Plus, we stock a marketplace full of vendors who will change what you think is possible for vegan food. It’s a weekend full of cooking demonstrations, free samples, new products, and cookbook launches. Oh, and eating. You seriously won’t believe how much eating there is. We insist on making this event free to the public, so all you need to bring is an appetite. And if you’re a carnivore, don’t worry – we won’t try to recruit you. The food might, though.
Between meals, our program is stuffed with workshops, lectures, fitness classes, music, panel discussions, and other special events. But let’s be honest, you won’t find out why we are North America’s premier veg food festival by reading words on the internet. You’ll have to visit us September 11-13, 2015 for a weekend-long celebration of the best the vegetarian world has to offer, hosted over 10-acres of Harbourfront Centre’s beautiful waterfront.”
