Paris Vegan Day 2010

As I left the hugely successful Paris Vegan Day on Sunday to catch my train, crowds of people were queueing outside, waiting to get in. Inside it had been packed right from the start as visitors moved between the various levels, trying to see as much as possible.

La Bellevilloise, this year’s venue, was much bigger than last year’s but it was still on the small side for an event that has rapidly reached the proportions of a full-scale exhibition.

Deborah Brown and her team had taken up the challenge of organising a Paris Vegan Day to match the growing interest in veganism.

On the agenda were talks, cookery demonstrations, lots of different foods to try and buy, along with other products not tested on animals, cruelty-free fashion parades, films and music. According to the French Wikipedia, the event attracted about 4,000 people curious to find out more about the vegan lifestyle – twice as many as the organisers had expected.

It was a real pleasure to be surrounded by like-minded folk and I returned home feeling that veganism is finally coming of age in France…
