The Green Edge Vegan Ekka Day Festival

Spend your day off feasting on animal-free dagwood dogs and nabbing a vegan show bag.

It's Ekka time again, but heading to the annual show isn't everyone's idea of fun. Specifically, if you're after an event that puts sustainability and ethical practices first and foremost — and focuses on zero-waste ideals and cruelty-free products — then you might want to mosey along to The Green Edge's one-day alternative instead.

Taking place on the Brisbane midweek public holiday that is Wednesday, August 15, The Green Edge Vegan Ekka Day Festival has dagwood dogs, but without any animal products. It'll also have show bags, but they won't be filled with the kind of sugary goodies you'd get at the RNA. Instead, the Windsor store is all about green and vegan wares — at its bake sale, in its raffles, throughout its stalls and while live music plays.

From 9.30am–3pm, a heap of other likeminded businesses will be on-site joining in, and yes, everything is 100 percent vegan. Entry is free, and as well as bringing the littlies, you can also bring your pets too.
