What we're about

This group was started to find vegans and vegan wannabes in the Hudson Valley. We combine Social Events and Social Action by enjoying delicious, healthful vegan food and encouraging others to do so. The more people who choose vegan food, the fewer farmed animals will be raised. You do not have to be vegan to join, just eat like one when you are with us. We get together to learn and to inform others.

Farmer's Market tabling

Rhinebeck Farmers' Market

On Sunday June 11, Hudson Valley Vegans will staff the not-for-profit table at the Rhinebeck Farmers Market. We hand out literature and vegan snacks; prospective members can sign up with us. A few volunteers are needed for a two hour shift between 10 am and 2 pm.

Email: [masked] (as well as an RSVP on this site) with your preferred time and contact info.

If you can provide homemade vegan cookies or other finger food this is a plus, but not required. A good outreach opportunity. We only have this available to us once a season.

Annual Picnic

Robert E Post Memorial Park

Our Annual Picnic.

(If it ain't broke - don't fix it)
This event has been on a Sunday in July for two decades at the same location - The Robert Post Park in Kingston at the Small Pavilion.

Attendance is always good as are the pot-luck dishes brought by attendees. Hudson Valley Vegans supplies the beverages.
Bring a picnic-appropriate vegan dish and, please bring your own table service (instead of "I forgot")

And a $5 per person donation, please pay when you arrive. This helps cover the rental on the pavilion.

Hudson Valley Renegades Baseball Game and Vegan Ballpark Dinner

Hudson Valley Renegades


Our Third Year to attend a Hudson Valley Renegades Baseball Game
and Vegan Ball Park Dinner

If you really enjoy vegan food and attending a baseball game this is a no-brainer.

Even if baseball is not on your top ten list - this is a very enjoyable social evening - we began in 2021 when the manager contacted me and said they were able to provide a vegan meal - we accepted and found it enjoyable. Please join us this year if possible. The Renegades Stadium is on 9D.
The dinner is at 6 and the game begins at 7pm. $30 for ticket and dinner. Venmo payment preferred. @angel-paw
