Full Meetup Calendar

Welcome[edit]

Welcome to the Nashville meetup page! Listed here are both past and future meetups. Basically, interested people (mostly Wikipedia editors) occasionally get together at various meeting places around the world to meet each other and have some fun. Not only does it provide an opportunity to meet other Wikipedians face-to-face, but also to share what we know in a more relaxed and personal setting. Overall, a meetup is an excellent opportunity to meet new friends. If you are interested in Wikipedia or other Wikimedia projects—regardless of your level of experience or involvement—or if you are otherwise involved with free content, you are invited and welcome.

Invite list[edit]

An invites list was created in May 2017, with the intent that invites for upcoming events will be sent to it. Feel free to add yourself to the list!
