#3. Vegan Kids Festival

Where: Dorset, UK

Vegan parents know the struggle: Explaining to your kids why they can’t have the ice cream or cake at a non-vegan friend’s birthday party is frustrating. But for an entire weekend in July, those worries can take a back seat.

With a range of thrilling activities for toddlers, kids, and teens, the Vegan Kids Festival was created for plant-based families to spend quality time in nature and make like-minded friends (and toast vegan marshmallows by crackling campfires).

From face painting, silent discos, and graffiti workshops to outdoor games and comfy hot chocolate hangouts, the plethora of fun activities are an insurance against boredom.

Between events, stroll through to Vegan Village to shop vegan essentials from local family-run businesses or dig in to freshly prepared vegan eats from the various food vendors.

Families can choose between bringing their own tents, staying in a caravan, or splurging on a comfortable glamping tent. For the particularly adventurous, Vegan Kids Festival offers special floating tree houses and other unique accommodations too!

#4. Vegamping

Although unfortunately cancelled for July 2022, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for future editions of the hyper-idyllic Vegamping festival in Belgium.

Organized by New Ethics, an organization that works closely with various other non-profits, Vegamping is home to fantastic vegan food, live music acts, cooking and activism workshops, yoga activities, and much more.

Don’t forget to attend their legendary after parties too!

Vegan Camping FAQs

Is camping eco-friendly?

Camping is more environmentally friendly than hotel stays. The average summer night in a camping trailer produces 1.5 kg of CO2 equivalents, while a night in a hotel produces 17 kg.

What do vegans eat when they go camping?

Easy vegan camping food includes tortillas/wraps, bread rolls, oats, beans, rice, and granola. You can also pack your own trail mix, protein bars, and vegan burger patties. The list is endless!

Are S’mores vegan?

Depends. Graham crackers and dark chocolate are usually vegan. However, most marshmallow brands contain gelatin. Since gelatin is derived from animal body parts, vegans should avoid conventional marshmallow brands.

Can you take tofu camping?

Raw unrefrigerated tofu lasts one to two days. Tofu is a great BBQ alternative to meat burgers and sausages. Marinate the tofu at home before your camping trip to save extra time.
