Vegan Potluck Picnic Lunch at Lakeview Park

We had such a great response to the potluck picnic in May (above), we're going to have another... This time at Lakeview Park in Middleton, which has a new splash pad area.

In addition to some food, feel free to bring along a football, frisbee, croquet set, radio, or other picnic-friendly item. You might also want to bring along a picnic blanket and chairs.
Cost: Free
Food: When you RSVP, please note either the specific food you will bring or a general description (main dish, salad, drinks, dessert, etc.).
Even if you are not vegan, please make sure the food you bring is. That way everyone can eat everything. But since some people may have additional dietary restrictions please also bring a card that lists the recipe/ingredients used. It's ok to bring something simple. This isn't a competition.
Vegan Recipes: Some good sites that include vegan recipes are,
Vegetarian Times,, and
Low Budget Vegetarian.
Utensils: Please bring along anything that's required for serving the food you bring. I will provide plates, cups, forks, knives, spoons, and napkins.
Kids: Kids are welcome to attend.
We will meet rain or shine. We have access to a large tent in case it rains.

    The food was excellent and plentiful. The attendees were interesting, and for the most part, very polite, and I met even more new people at this latest function. The weather could not have been better -- a nice consistent, misty breeze from the water sprinklers was pleasant and refreshing. I love to cook and look forward to the next potluck. I have many yummy dishes to share, some of my own creation. Thanks to everyone! Another successful event!

    Another nice time with like-minded individuals. I really hope we can find a way to have similar meetups during the winter months. And the food? Forgeedaboutit!! So glad this group exists. Many kudos and thanks to those responsible.

    There were 13 first-timers at this event. The weather was ideal. The food was delicious. It was a lot of fun to hang out with fellow vegetarians/vegans.

    Great fun eating everything on the tables without wondering what was in it! Excellent food, great conversations! We are very glad that we went. Wonderful fun!

    Our family always has a great time at the Vegetarian Meetups! The food was great and it's fun to see the dishes that other vegetarians/vegans create. We were a bit late (because it took longer than we anticipated) so we probably missed introductions but were still able to meet some new people! The water splash park was also really neat, especially for the kids.
