Gathering of the Tribes Vegan Potluck Picnic

IMPORTANT CHANGE: We've changed the location due to the approaching rain. We're now indoors at Beyond Fit gym, #510 W. Powell Lane, #408 (just north of 183). Start time is delayed one hour, to 5pm. Also, if you have folding chairs and/or tables, please bring them!


Come celebrate World Vegetarian Day at Austin's largest vegan potluck picnic! In addition to tons of delicious food and great company, there will be live music, giveaways, and a raffle to benefit Kate to the Rescue in Pflugerville! This time there is a $1 suggested donation to help defray costs. You get a free raffle ticket (donation or not), and additional raffle tickets are $1, so please bring cash!

Because we had SO MANY people and dishes at last spring's gathering, there is now an online registration system using Eventbrite. Before you come to the event, please register your dish by going to and choose a "ticket" based on what kind of dish you're bringing. 

Please bring a VEGAN dish to feed eight adults- no meat or animal products of any kind (dairy, egg, meat or chicken broths, honey, animal fats like lard, etc etc). You'll need to register your dish by choosing which category yours falls into...

• snacks/appetizers
• soups/leafy salads
• side dishes
• main dishes
• fruit dishes/desserts

PLEASE be sure to answer the questions about any allergens your dish may contain. This helps with labeling the dishes at the potluck for those with allergen or dietary issues.

If you want to bring more than one dish, please register each one separately with its own ticket. If you're planning on a prepared dish or packaged food from the grocery store, then it's not necessary to register with a ticket.

On the day of the gathering, please be sure to bring your own plate, utensils, and beverage (no glass)—and don't forget a serving utensil for your dish!

Questions? Just send a message to Brendan!

    Over 100 wonderful people attended. Beyond Fit was kind enough to offer accommodations when the park got rained out. The event was well-organized, and a lot of fun. Thank you everyone for preparing such wonderful, healthy food. I was happy to see some familiar faces there and look forward to seeing you all again next time.

    Bringing whole wheat banana bread with walnuts and also a loaf without nuts. How are we doing on folding tables and chairs? I have 4 folding chairs and may be able to dig out some folding tables. I'm not sure what will fit in my hatch back, so please let me know if I should bring them or not. I'm in Elgin. [masked]

    Will this be cancelled if it rains?

    September 28, 2013

    • Fletch Brendan G.

      No cancellation! We've already changed the location to indoors. The Gathering will now be at Beyond FIT gym, #501 W. Powell Lane, just north of 183. Start time is delayed by 1 hour to 5pm. And in case there's any confusion, we aren't going to be at Pease Park at all- this location change happens even if it turns out sunny. (Which will really make me mad.)
