VSDC Vegan Potluck Picnic - Rock Creek Park Grove 13

Celebrate World Vegetarian Day with us!!  The VSDC vegan potluck picnic on Saturday, October 1st starts at 12 pm (and we have Grove 13 reserved until 5 pm).  It is rain or shine and there is no charge to attend the picnic.   We only ask that you bring a vegan dish to share with others, along with a spoon or fork to dip into your delicious cuisine.   It is also requested that you have written out the list of ingredients so our friends with food allergies and other restrictions can easily determine whether or not they can enjoy the food you prepared.  Only non-alcoholic beverages are allowed in Rock Creek Park. 


Items to bring to the picnic:

Vegan potluck dish to share with friends

Ingredients list

A serving spoon/fork for your dish

Bring a beverage to drink (no alcohol, please)

Help save the planet and bring a reusable plate, cup, and silverware 


Friendly reminder, vegans do not consume any animal products or byproducts.  


Easy vegan recipes can be found at:


Grove 13 is a covered pavilion picnic area near the Nature Center & Planetarium in Rock Creek Park.  Parking is available in front of the picnic area.  For driving directions Google or Mapquest driving destination as:   5200 Glover Road, NW Washington, DC 20015

    I feel outdoor events should have an "rain date" so we can enjoy in the even in the sun and not in the rain.
