Vegan Thanksgiving Free Rancho Park Potluck Picnic Bring musical instruments to play
Once a year we gather together to have a turkey-friendly vegan Thanksgiving picnic. It's an afternoon of fun and frolic featuring music and some of the nicest people and organizations in and around Los Angeles.

Celebrants come from far and wide to participate in the longest running vegan tradition in Los Angeles. Historically attendees number from 150 on the low side to 450 on the high side.

Originated by EarthSave about 1994, this event became a no-host gathering approximately1998 and has evolved into a casual afternoon in the park on a beautiful fall day. Featured are literature tables, an open mike, leashed dogs, frisbees, lots of homemade food, and no fees.

Date: Thursday, November 22, 2007 (In case of rain, the event will be postponed until next year)
