SoCal Fruitluck has a history of being the oldest, largest & most active group in the world dedicated to local fruit outings, but should we make a change? Attendance has been lacking, so the question is - Should we include other Vegan concepts? We want your input!
We have been hosting Fruit related events throughout Southern California, and will begin to expand to allow more events, more often, and we're excited to hear member suggestions regarding new fun things to do.
There will be a table for fruit at this event...

LA'S LONGEST RUNNING SINGLE DAY VEGAN TRADITION
Los Angeles' biggest vegan potluck event of the year, a tradition for more than 25 years. Hundreds of people attend annually.
Come share some delicious food, connect with beautiful people, and enjoy the outdoor environment. 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.
While there is no fee to attend, please see details below so you know what to bring in order to participate
***Park Rules: No Alcohol***
***For each member of your party, please bring a vegan dish to share that will serve at least 8-10 people and that is ready to serve. For example if there are 2 people in your party, please bring 16-20 servings. 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 conscious 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.
****TO PREVENT PAPER & PLASTIC WASTE, PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN PLATES/BOWLS, CUPS, EATING UTENSILS AND SERVING UTENSILS.******
We start gathering at 11AM, have a beautiful opening circle at noon, then we begin our feast!
Enter Cheviot Hills park (aka Rancho Park) at the north entrance on Motor Avenue (the first entrance south of Pico Blvd). When you enter the park, there is a parking area on the left. Drive passed this parking area and follow the road to the next parking area which is a few hundred feet down. Walk to the picnic tables across the grass and behind the baseball field, . "VEG" signs will be posted to point the way.
