Singapore Vegan Festival 2022 is a culinary exploration of healthy sustainable food options and aims to pave the way for a socially-conscious dining future.
Vegan devotees, take note. Singapore Vegan Festival is back again this year, and the fourth edition of Singapore’s most important vegan-focused event may be its biggest yet. Singapore Vegan Festival 2022 will take place on 27 August 2022, and looks to feature an impressive lineup of local and international chef masterclasses, informative panel discussions, networking sessions, interactive workshops, as well as a plethora of vegan food, drink and shopping experiences – all in one location at the Raffles City Convention Centre.
While last year’s festival was a hybrid of physical and virtual events due to the ravages of the ongoing pandemic, Singapore Vegan Festival 2022 will be wholly live. This year there’s a strong focus on sustainable healthy food options, and also aim to spotlight food innovations for the future.
Key highlights of Singapore Vegan Festival 2022 at Raffles City Convention Centre include:
Visitors can look forward to live masterclasses and demonstrations by local and international chefs who will provide their individual insights into a vegan lifestyle. There’s Indonesia’s plant-based chef Max Mandias – co-founder of alternative protein startup Green Rebel Foods – will showcase vegan versions of familiar local favourites, while Malaysian vegan advocate Davina Goh, better known as her plant-based lifestyle persona Davina Da Vegan, will shares recipes, green living tips and places to enjoy plant-based meals in Malaysia.

Walking Food Tours
As was in previous years, this year’s festival will also extend beyond the festival proper with curated food tours by VegThisCity that celebrate Singapore’s alternative food scene and culture. Activities include a Chinatown Breakfast Walk on 28 August, a Banana Leaf Experience on 3 September, as well as a Peranakan Discovery on 4 September.
SVF will also be tying up with various dining and drinking venues across Singapore for exclusive plant-based menus over the course of the festival.
“Now in its fourth year, the Singapore Vegan Festival continues to connect and inspire a community bonded with a common interest; it is a showcase of the thriving plant-based food scene in Singapore,” explained Pooja Bakhshi, Founder and Director of EatRoamLive, the organisers of Singapore Vegan Festival.
“From award-winning chef masterclasses, expert panel discussions, interactive workshops and a vegan market to unique vegan food and drink experiences, and even walking tours and special restaurant menus islandwide, there’s something for everyone to enjoy,” Bakhshi added.
