About Christchurch

Christchurch is New Zealand’s vegan capital!

Originally launched in 2007 as the Vegetarian Expo, now renamed the Vegan Expo, this inspiring annual food and lifestyle event has continued to demonstrate growth and popularity year after year.

The Expos in Christchurch has been run under the direction of  the Christchurch Vegan Society (formerly known as the Christchurch Vegetarian Centre), a community focused charitable organisation whose aim is to support everyone within our community following, or interested in adopting, a vegan lifestyle.

The Vegan Expos attract a diverse cross section of the community. This includes those who are curious to learn more about cruelty-free alternatives to meat, eggs and dairy products, vegetarians, vegans and allergy sufferers and their family and friends.

“The Christchurch Vegan Expo was absolutely amazing! Thousands of people attended, the biggest event of it’s kind in NZ to date. 11 of us from Dunedin went up, and it was definitely worthwhile.”
