About Us

York Vegans is a community of York’s vegans – surprise, surprise!

We’ve come a long way in the last few years, from a largely dormant Facebook group to a community with regular socials and a festival in development.

This site serves to highlight both York’s vegan amenities (see the Vegan in York page) and the upcoming York VegFest on Sunday 9th October, the first festival of it’s kind in our fair city! Visit our Facebook page for the latest news and information on the event.

Oh, and we’d better introduce ourselves! Meetings and socials are open, so anyone can come along (even if you aren’t vegan!), but for now, here are the York Vegfest officers…

Chair: Michelle Palmer Wheeler
Vice Chair: Sharon Lewis
Secretary: Bex Dixon
Treasurer: Kaisha Palmer-Rippin
