The episode of The Simpsons where Lisa becomes a vegetarian is well-known for its catchy conga line song.

But as the number of vegans in Australia alone climbs to almost half a million, more and more people are discovering the downright tasty cruelty-free delights. And, while it’s been stereotyped that all we vegans do is munch sadly on our leafy greens, the first weekend of September is set to change all of that.

Across Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 September, Australia’s only vegan retail chain store – The Cruelty Free Shop on Mort Street, Braddon- will be running a weekend-long event called Vegan Day Out.

This celebration of the plant based lifestyle will give people a chance to try vegan food, drinks and cruelty-free products at discounted prices all across Braddon. More than 80 local businesses will be cutting their prices on vegan items and the event will be taking place around The Cruelty Free Shop franchises across Australia, including Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

All down Lonsdale Street, you’ll be able to find a moving feast comprising of 100% vegan products, including:

  • $2 Vegan cupcakes at Sweet Bones (pictured)
