The 42nd IVU World Vegfest earlier scheduled to hold in Africa will now take place in Dubai & India.This became necessary because of the outbreak of the Ebola disease in W/Africa. Click here to have more information and register.


We will provide details on the 43rd IVU World Vegfest  - which will still take place in Africa but now in 2015.  We want to take this opportunity to thank the organisers in Ghana & Togo for all their efforts to ensure that Africa will still host their 1st ever IVU World Vegfest next year.

All the IVU World Vegfests -past and future:


IVU was launched at an International Vegetarian Congress in 1908, in Dresden, Germany. They were then initially annual, but soon changed to every 3 years. By the mid-1950s the name had changed to the World Vegetarian Congress, held every 2 years. Everything vegan since 1996.

For all events before 2012, see: IVU 1908-2010

From 2012 we began the changeover to an annual IVU World Vegfest- with 40th in 2012 designated as a Congress/Vegfest. The Vegfests are being rotated around IVU's six regions, here's the complete list (with regional events in italics):
