While on my first trip to to Greece just last month, I was lucky enough to line up my stay with the Vegan Life Festival held in Athens, Greece the first weekend in October, 2019.
Having seen only photos on the company’s social media (and still unable to read the Greek alphabet), I knew to expect some items for purchase and some yummy food, but wasn’t sure what I’d find beyond that.
I anxiously counted the days until it was time for the festival and was so excited I even showed up to the event a day early. Oops.
But finally the ACTUAL day arrived, I showed up with excitement and a massive appetite.
Over the next 2 days I indulged in some incredible food, from souvlaki to soda to coconut ice cream.
Overall, it wasn’t quite as English language friendly as I ad hoped, but I did not have any trouble communicating or navigating.
And, happily, I fished my Christmas shopping nice and early.
If you’re in Greece ad happen to be there during the Vegan Life Festival, it s absolutely worth going to. Just show up hungry and ready for lots of vegan, eco-friendly goodies.
