****Please note that this event is promoted in many places and is likely to have hundreds more attendees than the RSVP's here would indicate.****

******PLEASE INVITE all your friends. Non vegans are welcome and encouraged to attend.******

This is my favorite annual event in Los Angeles and it is the biggest vegan potluck of the year in LA. This is a Los Angeles tradition that is more than two decades old. Typically hundreds of people attend. This is the place to be for a peaceful, Turkey friendly Thanksgiving. Come share some delicious food, connect with beautiful people, and enjoy the outdoor environment. Except for the vegan dish you bring, this is a free event (remember to bring your own plate/bowl, cup, eating/serving utensils, etc.). There will be music, live performances and an open mic. Feel free to bring drums, other musical instruments, a frisbee or a ball to toss. It's a great place for children. Well behaved dogs on leashes are welcome.

***Please bring a vegan dish to share. Vegan means no meat, fish, eggs, dairy or honey- No animal products at all.****

Organic, chemical free, GMO free foods are encouraged. Both cooked and raw vegan food is welcome. There will be a space designated for raw food. Please be concious to place your dish there only if every ingredient in your dish is 100% raw (pasteurized foods, commercially canned and most jarred food are not raw).

***Please bring an ingredient list to help those of us with allergies.***


Enter the park at the north entrance on Motor Avenue. Pass the first parking lot and drive to the second one. The potluck is at the picnic bench area a couple of hundred feet from this parking lot. "Veg" signs will be posted to point the way. We start gathering at 11AM, have a beautiful opening circle at noon, then we begin our feast!
