Join us for a summer potluck and picnic at Bluemont Park in Arlington VA. It's free and open to all.
Please bring a vegan dish to share and bring the ingredients list printed out. If possible, bring your own reuseable plate, silverware, and cup, to reduce waste. We will supply condiments, napkins, and earth-friendly plates and utensils for those who need them, and a vegan grill too. Beverages are BYOB, but we'll supply coolers and ice. Note: There is no alcohol allowed on the premises.
In addition to having a covered picnic facility, Bluemont Park is filled with amenities, including a playground, a softball field, a volleyball area (with net), a frisbee golf course, and paved nature trails for walking or biking. There is also a restroom nearby. The location is family-friendly.
This event is co-organized by VSDC and our friends at Compassion for Animals.
When: 11:30am – 4:30pm, rain or shine! Feel free to attend during any portion of this timeframe.
Where: Bluemont Park, 601 North Manchester St. Arlington, VA 22203
The park is just off Arlington Boulevard (Route 50). The closest parking to the picnic shelter is near Manchester Street. You can also park in the lot next to Carlin Springs Road; the picnic shelter is a short walk from there.
To facilitate carpooling, let us know if you need a ride or can provide a ride (including where you are) when you RSVP. You can also post a message on this event page so people can request / provide rides.
