On Saturday 16 May 2009, Victoria Square in Birmingham City Centre will be transformed by Veggie Pride UK - a fantastic celebration of vegetarian and vegan diets/lifestyles. It`s an opportunity for everyone following compassionate, eco-friendly, healthy lifestyles to come together for a fun, carnival style event whilst also raising awareneness of the many benefits - for human health, animals, environment etc.
For several years, Veggie Pride events have been held in Paris, and last year, also in Rome and New York. The main attraction of these events is a procession through the streets and also stalls, food, entertainment etc. No such event has ever been staged in the UK...until now!!
Veggie Pride UK will take place in the heart of Birmingham, at the end of New Street in Victoria Square. Being in a busy central location, we expect the festival to attract hundreds of local people throughout the day, not to mention vegetarians and vegans who will flock to this unique event from across the UK!!
Birmingham has played a very important role in the progress of vegetarianism for well over 100 years (see our page Why Birmingham? ) and continues to do so today. By staging Veggie Pride UK in Birmingham, we seek to build on the vegetarian foundations layed down here generations ago. We hope it will become an annual event, celebrated by vegetarians & vegans from across the country and we have no doubt it will grow in size and popularity year after year!
