If you're hunting down some top-notch plant-based eats this weekend, you'll find a culinary oasis awaiting you at Abbots Yard. From Saturday, August 20–Sunday, August 21 the Abbotsford precinct is set to host its inaugural micro vegan fest, dubbed Wntr Hrvst.

Organisers have lined up a tantalising array of plant-based street food vendors, including Future Sushi with their uramaki and nigiri, smoothies and sweet treats by Little Mylkbar, along with conscious comfort food courtesy of Dolly Bus. Glou will be making an appearance on the Sunday, slinging goodies like a roasted cauliflower, fennel and dukkah focaccia, and there'll be a lineup of vegan market stalls to browse, too.

Over on the stage, you'll catch a diverse spread of musicians lending their magic to the weekend's soundtrack; from folk-rocker Maddy Petch, to blues act Caisha Sprout, to the electronic-infused sounds of indie folk artist Ere Lo.

Meanwhile, the precinct's cutting-edge shipping container cinema will be screening the travelogue TV series from plant-based production company Eating Plants, exploring the benefits of a vegan diet as told by experts from across the globe.

Entry is free, though you'll want to RSVP online for either the Saturday or the Sunday.
