Singapore Vegan Festival 2021 is a 10-day festival that sees an entire slew of activities and events catered for devotees of the vegan movement.
Singapore Vegan Festival (SVF) is back, and with its third edition, Singapore’s most important vegan-focused event it may be the most impressive yet. Held as a partner event of Singapore Food Festival 2021, Singapore Vegan Festival 2021 will take place from 27 August to 5 September 2021, and over those 10 days there’s a cracking lineup of live and virtual events that aim to drive awareness and adoption of veganism. From chef masterclasses and food tours to virtual talks and even a vegan market planned, there’s plenty for those who have dedicated themselves to a vegan lifestyle (or those aspiring to one).
SVF organisers EatRoamLive has even landed Miyoko Schinner, Founder & CEO of Miyoko’s Creamery in the United States, as a keynote speaker for SVP 2021. Schinner – one of the leading thinkers of the global vegan movement – was recently recognised by the United Nations as a “Vegan Revolutionary” in its The Future of Women’s global initiative as well as named in Forbes’ 50 Women over 50. Other guest speakers include vegan mountaineer Kuntal Joisher, London-based plant-based nutritionist Dr. Shireen Kassam, and record-breaking British distance runner Fiona Oakes.
Aside from various talks and panel discussions, key highlights of Singapore Vegan Festival 2021 include:
EatRoamLive has invited prominent chefs who are advocates of clean eating. Michelin-starred celebrity chef Emmanuel Stroobant, chef-owner of Saint Pierre, is the festival’s headlining guest chef and will be demonstrating how to create a mushroom and angel hair dish during an exclusive live and virtual masterclass. Other chefs include Chef Damian Piedrahita, founder of 4MY (the food tech company behind Singapore’s favourite vegan camembert), Chef Addis Tan of plant-based restaurant HRVST Bistro, and Raw Chef Yin, Malaysia’s raw vegan celebrity chef and best-selling author of various plant-based cookbooks.

Singapore Vegan Festival In The Sky
A popular highlight of every SVF is its festival marketplace, and Singapore Vegan Festival 2021 will see this year’s edition held over two days on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 September. The marketplace will host a large selection of imported and homegrown vegan brands that will include gourmet vegan cheeses, gluten and dairy-free desserts, healthy snacks, plant-based meats, vegan wines, cruelty-free skincare, and lifestyle products. Part of the proceeds from the ticket sales will be donated to charity.
Exclusive Dining Experiences
SVF has also tied up with various dining and drinking venues across Singapore for exclusive plant-based menus over the course of the festival. Partner restaurants include smart-casual Italian eatery Amò, modern Indian Fennel by Komala Vilas, Mediterranean-themed rooftop cocktail bar Levant, and rooftop dining destination and microbrewery restaurant LeVeL33, among others.
“Singapore Vegan Festival’s goal is to provide a platform for the vegan community in Singapore and promote the products and resources available to them,” says Pooja Bakhshi, Founder and Director of EatRoamLive and Singapore Vegan Festival. “At the same time, we also want to raise awareness and inspire non-vegan Singaporeans and the expat community to explore the thriving plant-based and flexitarian universe of Singapore.”
“We are anticipating events such as Chef Emmanuel’s masterclass will be quite popular, so we are preparing for both in-person and a live virtual option for guests to participate from the comfort of their own kitchen. While we can’t host our events the same way we did pre-COVID-19 pandemic, our team has been resilient and are ensuring all safety measures will be in place for all our physical events,” Bakhshi adds.
