What we're about
A Tribe Called Veg is for vegans and aspiring vegans in the Tampa area to socialize, network and build new friendships. Join us for picnics, potlucks, festivals, fitness, nights out, community building, education, and having a good time! Events typically take place in Tampa, but we’ll occasionally branch out to surrounding areas for beach outings, hikes and the occasional retreat. We support vegan restaurants and events geared toward diversity, compassion and wellness. This tribe was created with the purpose of fostering unity in the vegan movement. Don't be afraid to join even if you aren't yet a vegan/vegetarian!
We have a $12 annual membership fee ($1 per month) after 60 days to cover the cost of administering the group and provide a buffer for planning our larger events, like retreats.
As a courtesy to all members of the group and the venues we support, we ask that you show up for events that you've committed to attend. If you can't, simply update your RSVP prior to the event. This will give another member the opportunity to attend and provide an accurate headcount for the venue. This condition doesn't apply to events that you've paid for in advance or "open" activities likes festivals, hikes, etc. However, it is important we have an accurate headcount for restaurants.
We strongly recommend you download the Meetup app on your smartphone for easy communication, particularly during events where we need to find each other.
Some events have the risk of physical injury. It is your responsibility to only attend events you are physically able to participate in. A Tribe Called Veg and its organizers may not be held responsible for injuries at any events. Many events will be kid-friendly. Adult-only events will be specified.
All of us need community when it comes to healthy eating and living. We hope you will join us as we grow into an amazing, inclusive vegan community.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
