What we’re about

This local, vegan group strives to be a fun way for vegans and those interested in veganism or vegan food to get together. The meetups are open to vegans and non-vegans; offer great chance for vegans and others to socialize; and are a great opportunity for non-vegans to learn about local vegan options and happenings, in a casual, social setting.

With over 2,000 group members, you're bound to meet people you have a lot in common with, as well as many from other walks of life. We don't fit a stereotype...our members range from teens to seniors and include families with young kids, lifelong Madisonians, new residents, lawyers, doctors, truck drivers, business owners, writers, programmers, students, teachers, and so many more.

Group members who become Event Organizers are welcome to organize meetups. (If you are interested in becoming an Event Organizer, contact the group Organizer.)

Event Organizers pick a variety of places to meet that may (or may not) serve liquor and beer, and that serve vegan food, in friendly and convenient locations. The venues may include restaurants, bars, festivals, parks, or even members' homes.

NOTE: All events are vegan, even if a venue offers non-vegan fare. Non-vegans and the "vegan-curious" are more than welcome. (We love having you here!) For the comfort of all attending, and in the spirit of vegan Meetup groups around the world, please keep your food & drink orders vegan, as well as anything you might bring to share. We'll be happy to help you with suggestions. Just ask!

There is no charge to join the group, but some of the events may have a fee.
