Whooo like a week ago we organised our own vegan festival at OT301! We aimed to organise a festival offering not just vegan delicacies but also food for thought and cultural stuff. Showing the diverse ways in which people are engaged with veganism.
So we had lectures about vegan advocacy, spoken word with lyrics written for the occasion, bands playing, food and animal rights stalls and much more! It was a beautiful sunny day and hundreds of people visited – great that so many people in Amsterdam are interested in veganism these days! See you next time perhaps! Click here to see the photos.
Whooooooooo being (lazy and) vegan just became easier with New York Pizza and Domino’s both introducing vegan pizzas on their menu! Available in their restaurants of course but also for delivery! Read more

Say you want to celebrate so vegan pie is asked for! But where do you go? While there used to be only a handful of places (restaurants) which would offer it, these days it seems like no new cool coffeeplace can do without offering some vegan sweet stuff. Great! This is a list of all places which are currently offering vegan pie. And we’re talking ’bout the real stuff, no ‘raw energy balls’ or granola bars, please! Read more

A classic! ‘Eating animals’ sticker added to a STOP traffic sign. Spotted At Jan Van Galenstraat.
Ali Sadiq, who is vegan himself, ran a stall selling vegan samosa’s at the Van der Pek market at Amsterdam Noord for a year. With icecream parlour Het Ijsboefje closing for half a year he took his chance and is renting the space for the season, running his pop-up Vegan Snack Shop. The east of Amsterdam doesn’t have a lot of vegan / vegan-friendly places (especially not compared to the western part of town) so this is a welcome addition! Read more
