All vegan, all Chicago.

Howdy and welcome to Vegan Chicago!

We are the oldest and one of the largest vegan-focused meetup group in the world! Founded in 2002 and run by long-time vegan and animal rights activists we have extensive experience and knowledge with a passion to share. We are Chicago's vegan support group that provides connections and resources for being vegan in Chicago.

We welcome anybody regardless of how "vegan" you are. We recognize the "practical" part of being vegan with an eye on the larger prize. No judging here so we have a Code of Conduct policy in place to ensure everybody has a great time. We are also unique in that we have a science-positive mission motivated by an ethical point of view.

For more information about what we do here at Vegan Chicago please check out our About page.

Please join us, we look forward to seeing you out at some of our many fun events, thanks!

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.
