The Philippines’ Vegan Festival Is This Weekend—and We’re So Excited!

After VegFest Pilipinas—the Philippines’ first vegan festival—wowed the capital last year with everything from mind-blowing vegan hot dogs to cruelty-free cosmetics, we’re so excited to announce that the second edition will be held in Metro Manila this weekend.

Here are just 15 of the countless reasons to be there (or have major FOMO) this weekend:

  1. It’s free!
  2. It’s going to be hot, but that’s OK, because there’ll be 11 different flavors of vegan ice cream to help you cool down. You’re welcome.

Happy Friday indeed!

  1. Did someone say vegan beef rendang and chicken wings in honey butter? The Real Happy Cow really does make dreams come true.

Five more days before @vegfestpilipinas 2017 at Eastwood, y’all! we are so stoked! We are bringing our cheeses, mayo, frozen food (beef rendang, bolognese and chick’un wings) and serving our melt-in-your-mouth chick’un wings in HONEY BUTTER and GOCHUJANG SESAME ala carte (great with ice-cold beer, and as luck would have it, we do have a vegan beer merchant in the house!) and as a meal (6-pieces with red/brown rice). See you there! ???? PS: Photo credit goes to @ohmyqueendiana ♥ We soft launched in @goodfoodsundays and people asked for more wings! we heard you so we’re serving six instead of four! #madeofvegetables #wholefood #vegan #thehealthierchoice
