About the Vegan Expo
Beginning in 2016, the Whangarei Vegan Expo is an annual event that exhibits the very best of veganism. Stallholders from around the country showcase their plant-based products and services, while speakers and presenters share the benefits of veganism. Previous years have seen 1500+ attendees, international guests, fun cooking demos, delicious food, live music and much more! We can’t wait to see you!
By car: Whangarei is just over 2 hours north of Auckland centre. Traffic volume can be variable so allow more time than you anticipate.
By bus: There is an Intercity bus service which runs through the north island of New Zealand. Visit Intercity for the schedule. The walk to Forum North from the bus stop at the Hub takes about 15 minutes.
