Gathering of the Tribes, for Austin's Vegan/Vegetarian Community

For the first time ever, there'll be one big event to bring together all the groups, organizations and members of Austin's vegan, vegetarian, and animal-advocacy community. At Pease Park on Saturday October 2nd we're having a huge vegan mega-potluck to celebrate the huge year that 2010 has been so far for our community. Our activities and activism, our great food and fun-loving groups have gotten Austin national recognition. Come join in with all your veggie friends!

Anyone at all can attend, so please bring friends, especially veg-curious ones! Bring a vegan dish to feed at least 8 people (obviously not everyone will get to taste every little thing at such a huge potluck!), plus your beverages and eating utensils/plates.

The major Austin groups will all be there- Vegetarian Network of Austin, Vegans Rock Austin, Austin Progressive Vegetarians, Vegan Drinks Austin and Action for Animals Austin. Plus we're hoping to get as many of our local vegan business owners, restaurateurs, bloggers and "celebrities" to attend as possible.

    My family and I had a great time. Plenty of food, nice mingling. Fletch was a great host and kept it rolling. The food everyone brought was fantastic but I wished I remember my serving spoons. We are new to the area so finding about all the vegan/vegetarian options in the Austin area was great. I miss alot of the meetups due to schedule conflicts or family obligations so I was glad I could go to this one. I am trying to figure out how to get involved, volunteer with the different vegan/vegetarian groups and this helped me to figure out how to do it and which one I wanted to spend my time and support. So many great organizations with enthusiastic members! Great bunch of folks very helpful. I found out about so many places to visit and eat also. Vegan ice cream (Sweet Ritual) and the different veg trailers (didn't know since I am new here) that I am going to try to find. I hope they post info on all the vendors, sponsors and veg folks somewhere that I can find more info

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
