The 5th Annual Los Angeles Great American Wiknic will be held on Saturday, 25 July 2015 in Pan-Pacific Park.

What, Where, When, and How?[edit]

What: Picnic!
Where: Pan-Pacific Park [ info ] [ Custom Google map ]
When: Saturday, July 11 25, 2015; ~9:30 AM – 4 PM
How: By hook or by crook


Following last year's plan, early arrivals should plan to secure tables and grills at the north end of the park, closer to Beverly Boulevard. The park is usually busy on weekends. With the proper signage and perhaps some gear from the Wikimedia shop, we ought to be able to find one another. Please be clear when marking "likely" or "possible" because those bringing food will need to know what kind of headcount for which to prepare. If you look at the Google map (linked above), the ideal locations are marked BBQ locations A–D (we were at D the last two years). howcheng {chat} 18:22, 21 June 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • I would so love to be there in person but we are swirling in a number of volunteer projects that make it hard to take the trip up. Sending much love in the meantime. If anyone wants to get in our psychology article-related work, we'd love to connect with some other wikiPedians! Especially focused on our work with Philip_Zimbardo right now. Building a volunteer program called Zimbardo's Everyday Heroes that includes wiki editing. More details at You can also email me directly: mel -at- DrMel (talk) 17:21, 24 July 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
