Vegan Social Events are the first in Toronto to focus on promoting both veganism and sustainability - because the two go hand-in-hand! Our events are 100% vegan and low-waste. They bring together influencers, media makers, the community, and local companies for delicious vegan eats & drinks, sustainable shopping, and guest speaking engagements. Vegan Social Events attract conscious consumers and socially responsible businesses. Our events focus on promoting the vegan lifestyle in a friendly and inclusive manner, and inspire attendees to live sustainably!

About Vegan Social Events

The first Vegan Social Event was hosted in September 2016 in Toronto and brought together influencers and media makers for a celebration of the local thriving vegan scene. This event was unique to the local vegan community and well received by all involved. Our Pop-Up Events in July and September 2017, were open to the public and sold out, with line-ups out the door! 

In 2018, we hosted the first Sustainable Block Party + Pop-Up Market, with free admission and keynote speaker James Aspey, an Australian Animal Rights Activist. The success of Vegan Social Events continued with the sold-out September 2018 Pop-Up Event which attracted many repeat attendees and included guest speakers, Candice Hutchings of The Edgy Veg, The Sustainable Duo and Jacky from BEETxBEET.


Avra Epstein and her team from Vegan Social Events, which includes vegan event organizer Little by Little as well as local vegan YouTubers, The Two Market Girls, take veganism, sustainability and good times, very seriously.

And I’m glad they do, cause they throw a hell of a party.

I can honestly say I do not believe I have ever eaten so many varieties of vegan cheese in one evening.

Very seriously at least 15.

Life level = Expert.

I wasn’t sure what to expect on Sunday, so I was incredibly surprised when I lined up outside the venue on Bloor Street. Yes, there was a freakin’ line and the place was pa-aah-haacked.

It was such a pleasure attending the first Toronto Vegan Social event in 2016! Best vegan event that I’ve been to so far in Toronto. Cool, hip, great vibes, delicious food, and just overall an amazing place to be for socializing and networking with like-minded individuals with drive and passion. I am genuinely looking forward to more of Avra’s upcoming events! Hope to see you there!
