4th of July Picnic in the Park!

This July 4th join us for a festive day of food and fun at T.Y. Park in Hollywood! For our picnic/BBQ, please bring a vegan, picnic-appropriate dish that serves at least 5-10 people or veggie burgers or hot dogs for our BBQ grill. In addition to our picnic, there will be Speed Friending, field games, special vegan S'mores and more! 

This will be an all-day event, so feel free to bring lawn chairs or blankets as well as board games, card games and/or sporting stuff (balls, frisbees)  for your outdoor enjoyment! 

T.Y. Park features sprawling, shaded picnic grounds and lovely lake, and is a perfect place for Fourth of July celebrating.

There is a $1.50/per person admission to the park. Please email me ([masked]) with any questions!

    Thank you to everyone for making yesterday's picnic such a wonderful event! It was a lot of work planning it but the fun and enjoyment everyone had made everything worth it. I hope to hold a similar event again later this summer. As usual, it was a pleasure to be your host. All the best, Janay

    Hi everyone, our location at the park has moved. We're sitting east of Shelter 10 and north of "Castaway Island Waterpark".Please see the map in the description. When you enter the park turn left and follow the road to this area. Look for a blue/yellow tent next to a field and a small playground. Thanks!

      I've been making so many rounds. I see a yellow and blue tent east of Shelter. No one is under the tent.

    Just thought I would mention that there is a water park in case people want to bring a suit and cool off!

    Hey everyone, I want you to know that you don't have to cook something at home for the picnic. You're welcome to bring prepared food from Publix or Whole Foods or take-out from a restaurant, as long as it follows the parameters of being vegan and enough for 5-10 people. And it doesn't have to be fancy - guacamole and chips is a perfect picnic food! Cheers

    • Janay L.

      Hi Julie, Hannah and Rosalyn have volunteered to bring the basic supplies like paper goods, utensils and water, but we could always use extra ice! Thanks

    Which shelter?

    1 · June 28, 2014

    • Janay L.

      Hi Karen, we haven't rented a shelter. We'll be sitting under some nice shade trees a little to the west of shelter 10, across from the basketball courts. (Please see the map in the description.) When you enter the park, please turn left and follow the road to this area. We shouldn't be hard to find, but if you have any questions or issues feel free to call me at (786) 261-9514. Thanks!

      I am new to vegan. I'd love to meet you all.

  • Laura O.

    Are there any rules for what to being besides it being vegan (obviously) ?

    1 · June 28, 2014

    • Janay L.

      Hi Laura, not really. I've seen other vegan potlucks that require the food be organic/non-GMO/ local produced/ minimally processed, etc. but I welcome everyone to bring whatever they want, as long as it's vegan and tastes good! Otherwise no strict rules
