Complete Guide to Vegetarian and Vegan Meetups in Madrid

Hello to all my vegetarians and vegans in Madrid! This post will cover all of the plant-based Meetup groups in the city. You may have seen my Complete Guide to Vegetarian and Vegan Blogs and Groups in Madrid that I posted a few months ago; it’s a go-to guide for anyone interested in connecting with the veggie community in Madrid. Despite this being a carnivorous capital city, there is a plethora of plant-based people and places sprinkled throughout. Since I already covered blogs and groups, I thought it might be helpful to list the vegetarian and vegan Meetups in the Madrid. I’ve combed through all the groups so you don’t have to. I’ve included them all – the active, not so active, and inactive groups. The groups cover everything from eating out, cooking, potlucks, education, activism, and more. Meetups are a great way to meet like-minded people. Many of the groups are bilingual which is a fun way to practice your Spanish.
