Prague Czech Republic Vegan Events

Prague is an incredibly vegan-friendly city. With over 50 vegan restaurants alone, it should come as no surprise that there are a lot of vegan events in Prague each year. Vegan festivals, raw festivals, World Vegan Day celebrations, and even a vegan Christmas market all take place in Prague.

There are so many vegan events in Prague that it can be a little difficult to keep track of them all. That said, as an expat it can also be a little tough to find out about every single vegan event. But after living in Prague for several years, I think I know about most of them now…hopefully, and want to share them with you.
