About the Kapiti Expo

Our first exciting Expo!

Welcome to the inaugural Kapiti Vegan Expo site. Vegan expos and festivals have popped up all around New Zealand but this is the first of its kind in the lower North Island.

The Expo is about sharing knowledge and ideas. It will include information about vegan food and health, information on environmental factors and animal rights and welfare. But the big focus will be the food as it is the food that sells vegan lifestyle.

There will be stallholders offering yummy vegan food, free tasters and a range of dishes both new and familiar but served vegan style. There will be cooking demonstrations and breakout rooms for guest speakers and vegan film screenings.

Whether peoples’ motives to be vegan are driven by their dietary needs, environmental concerns or animal welfare issues or just a love of great plant-based food, the timing is right for an Expo in the Wellington region that helps provide those answers and share information.
