Vegan Potluck Picnic Lunch at Lakeview Park

Join us for a potluck picnic at Lakeview Park in Middleton. There's a playground, lots of open space, and a fun splash pad area...

In addition to some food, feel free to bring along a football, frisbee, croquet set, radio, or other picnic-friendly item. You might also want to bring a picnic blanket and chairs.


Thanks to the Willy St. Co-op for donating 25 pounds of vegan mac & cheese!

Cost: Free

Food: When you RSVP, please note either the specific food you will bring or a general description (main dish, salad, drinks, dessert, etc.). Even if you are not vegan, please make sure the food you bring is. That way everyone can eat everything. And please bring a card with the recipe / ingredients. It's ok to bring something simple. This isn't a competition.

Vegan Recipes: Some good sites that include vegan recipes are Andrea's Easy Vegan Cooking, VegCooking.com, Vegetarian Times, VegWeb.com, and Low Budget Vegetarian. (Let me know if there are other great sites for vegan recipes. Thanks.)

Utensils: Please bring along anything that's required for serving your dish (soup ladle, spatula, etc.). I will provide plates, cups, forks, knives, spoons, and napkins.

Kids: Kids are welcome to attend.

Why can't I RSVP as a maybe? Meetup.com removed the option for organizers to allow maybe RSVPs. If you would like to attend this event but cannot commit to going at this time, please RSVP yes and include a note in your RSVP that you are really a maybe.

What if it rains? We will meet rain or shine. (Actually, we will go on as planned if it's just light rain, but the event will be cancelled if there are heavy storms.) If there's any question about the weather the morning of the event, I will email the plan to everyone who RSVPed.

    Very nice! I liked the food and the people, and the fact that it was free aside from the dish we had to bring. Thanks to Dave for organizing this!

    It was a great picnic in a very nice park where kids and adults could be easily entertained. The group that attended was fabulous and Dave, the organizer, once more made an impeccable event, where we all had fun, made new friends, ate some delicious vegan food and had good times.

    A lot of good food and the rain held off. I like that park. Too bad most people had left when Trina arrived with her delicious apple pie cake and almond ice cream. Oh boy you missed it.
