We are in Berlin from the start, since 2007, transforming the heart of Berlin into a single gourmet-oasis.
Dear fans of the Vegan Summer Festival Berlin,
A special year lies behind us. The Vegan Summer Festival Berlin took place again for the first time after a three-year break due to the pandemic. It was the 13th edition of Europe’s largest vegan festival.
What began in 2008 as a vegan park festival with around 300 participants has developed rapidly over the last decade: more than 65,000 visitors from all over the world, over 130 international stands from the food, cosmetics, clothing, NGO and other sectors – organised by ProVeg, Berlin-Vegan and the Albert Schweitzer Foundation.
In 2023, however, many things were different: the festival could only boast just under 80 exhibitors and only half as many visitors came as in 2019. In its previous form, the Vegan Summer Festival Berlin was no longer able to build on the success of previous years.
While this may be disappointing, it also highlights an even greater success: the vegan nutrition has firmly arrived in the centre of society! You can now find many great vegan products and dishes in all supermarkets and restaurants.
The Vegan Summer Festival Berlin has always made plant-based nutrition a practical experience. So how can it continue to live up to its claim in view of this fantastic development?
In our view, the festival now needs a complete reorganisation to reflect the changing, more plant-based zeitgeist. Would you like to take part? Feel free to send us your suggestions and ideas! And of course we would be delighted if you supported our work beyond the Vegan Summer Festival Berlin. Visit our many other events, take part in our numerous projects and follow us on social media for more vegan information.
We would like to thank all the volunteers, speakers, exhibitors, sponsors and, of course, visitors who have supported the festival over the years!
Your team from the Vegan Summer Festival Berlin,
ProVeg, Berlin-Vegan and Albert Schweitzer Foundation
