Cruelty Free Festival Perth 2011 – Earthwise Community Centre, Subiaco.

Animal Rights Advocates (ARA) is hosting the second annual Perth Cruelty Free Festival on Saturday, November 5th, from 10am till 4pm. The event will be held at Earthwise Community Centre, located at 315 Bagot Road, Subiaco. Entry is free and animal companions are welcome!

Last year’s inaugural Cruelty Free Festival was an extremely successful day. Wellness WA (that’s us!!!) reviewed the event and described it as ‘a lovely way to spend an afternoon’ and ‘a fantastic new event.’ We also got really positive feedback from stallholders and attendees. We’re making this year’s festival even better by extending the event to incorporate more performances, demonstrations and talks throughout the day, as well as including an even greater variety of delicious food and interesting stalls.

As the festival coincides with World Vegan Day (November 1st), it will be focussed on promoting a cruelty free lifestyle. There will be vegan cooking demonstrations, a special area for children and inquisitive parents to discuss raising vegan kids, and animal-rights themed movie screenings, talks and stalls.

ARA sees cruelty free living as part of a broader struggle for justice for all – humans and other animals. The festival will therefore have an overall social justice theme, with stalls promoting social justice causes such as human rights and environmental sustainability.

While there will be heaps of information, there will also be lots of entertainment! We will have musicians and other performers continuously entertaining people throughout the entire day, kid’s activities including face painting and crafting, a vegan barbecue with freshly made sausages and plenty of other opportunities to relax and enjoy yourself at the festival.
It’s shaping up to be another great event and we’d love to see you there!

Hope to see some of you down there!

Be well,
