More than 100 domestic and foreign exhibitors will present themselves at this year’s two day ZeGeVege festival, which will be held on Friday, September 2nd (9AM – 9PM) and Saturday, September 3rd (9AM – 7PM). The products will feature healthy food, ecological produce and cosmetics free of animal testing.

A rich program filled with workshops and lectures about different areas of veganism, ecology and sustainable living will captivate visitors’ attention. Numerous musicians and dance groups that support animal rights will take turns on the stage on both days of the ZeGeVege festival.

In addition to 6 restaurants, plant-based ice-cream and raw cakes, visitors can anticipate many different curiosities like vegan kebab, hemp burgers, dried pumpkin noodles and tasty energy bars. Along with the food, different cosmetic plant-based products (like ZeGeVege lavender soap), ecological bamboo toothbrushes and toothbrushes for pets will be introduced. Special attention will be placed on the announced solar stove.

This festival, in which only plant-based, environment friendly products are being exhibited, is unique in Croatia. It’s being organized under the sponsorship of president Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, the Croatian Parliament – Environment and Nature Conservation Committee, the City of Zagreb and the Mayor’s Office, the Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Tourism, the City Office for Agriculture and Forestry and the Teaching Institute of Public Health “Andrija Štampar”.

The diverse and interesting program, more than 40,000 expected visitors and an amazing atmosphere are big reasons to plan a visit to the 9th ZeGeVege festival.

This international showcase is interesting, amusing and educative. It’s also important in promoting sustainable living and the well-being of people, the environment and animals. The festival is a non-profit event.
Animal Friends are inviting all representatives of the media to support the festival with their publications and media sponsorships.
