DAY BY DAY BREAKDOWN
What to expect at this year's Canada Vegan FEST...
Day 1: Meeting New Friends
At this year's Canada Vegan Fest, you'll meet hundreds of other vegans who are just like you... 

For 4 days, you're sharing space with HUNDREDS of other extraordinary vegans who all have brilliant stories and experiences to share.

Everyone you come in contact with is likely to feel like a new friend... and it's often said that the first person you make eye contact with becomes your best friend!


Day 2: Foundational Education
The foundation is the key to success. If you build your life on a strong foundation, then it will not fail. 

With the right foundation, all of our "self development" tips will amplify what you do...

Our speakers will show you EXACTLY what life hacks are working to quickly improve their lives.

Each speaker will bring a different type of hack that you can model for your own life!

• Nutrition
• Exercise
• Relationships
• Spirituality
• Career
• Finances
• Spirituality
Day 3: Expansion
Now that you have the foundations... the next step is building on those foundations!

• How do you get all of the nutrients?
• How do you drop body fat while building muscle?
• How do you find or create relationships that last?
• How do you find peace within no matter where you are?
• How do you land your dream job?
• How do you start your own vegan business?

Our speakers will show you their secrets behind what they are currently doing to get continuous leads, and ascend them through the sales process to become customers.  
Day 4: Love
Day #4 is usually my favorite day. This is where we 
shift focus from YOU the center of attention... to get you taking action and creating an impact in other people's lives... and 
leaving your own legacy!

This festival is not about serving yourself... it's about serving others. When you learn how to shift your focus to impact and legacy, happiness will follow.

Our "We-Don't-Eat-Our-Friends" Policy:
This is an animal product free event. 

All of the food provided at the Canada Vegan Fest is raw & vegan. 

If you have any special dietary requests outside of eating just fruits and vegetables, please contact us immediately.

The Canada Vegan Fest aims to create a community around safety non-cruelty. It is our belief that animal products are not safe and are the product of cruelty. 

If someone wants additional calories from animal products for some reason, we ask that they consume those animal products off of the property or out of sight and away from the children. 

This is a family event and it would be heartbreaking for children to see someone eating animal products in this sacred space. 

None of the other attendees would appreciate it either. 

If someone is seen with animal products, they will be asked to leave the premises and eat that food away from our attendees. 

Our "Drug-&-Alcohol-Free" Policy:
This is a Drug And Alcohol-Free Event
We do not serve any alcohol or sell any drugs at this event, nor do we serve any hazardous substances. 

This goes for marijuana, alcohol, cigarettes, vaporizers, mushrooms, etc. 

All cars will be searched for drugs and alcohol upon arrival. 

If anyone is found with drugs or is suspected to be on drugs, they will be asked to leave the premises for the remainder of the festival. 

The only ‘drug’ that is acceptable at this festival is caffeine; in the form of tea & coffee. 

However, even this ‘drug’ should be left at home as we would encourage all attendees to experience life without drugs for at least the duration of this naturally high vibrational festival.
