All The Vegan Food To Eat At St Kilda Festival 2020

40 years ago, St Kilda Festival kicked off its very first event. A celebration of summer, community spirit, culture, music and of course St Kilda. Held on the second Sunday of February each year, it draws record crowds each year of over 400,000. That’s 4 x the AFL Grand Final FYI.

The entire suburb shuts down and the streets come alive with street performers, buskers, live music at multiple stages, scattered throughout the foreshore. It’s a day not to be missed.

Although there are activities, carnival rides, kids entertainment dancing, markets and much more. There is also a HUGE amount of food vendors, and this year seems to be the biggest for vegan food. See below the extensive list of vendors and their vegan food offerings.

Date: Sunday, 9th February
