Big Traveling Potluck 2013

April 26-28

Murrieta, California



After three incredible Big Summer Potlucks in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, we're taking this potluck on the road! We're thrilled to invite you to our first-ever Big Traveling Potluck (BTP1) in Murrieta, California, nearly equidistant from Los Angeles and San Diego. While our event has certainly grown in many wonderful ways, we're still committed to the mission that drove our very first potluck: building community.




BTP1 will begin with on Friday, April 26. You will be picked up from the hotel In Temecula (more info on that below) at 5pm, and chauffeured to Plateau Edge in Murrieta, CA for pre-registration, followed by cocktails and dinner. You'll be able to catch up with friends you haven't seen for months, or finally meet those you've only known online.

Saturday will be our full day of activities, and we'll start bright and early with pickup at the hotel at 8am. You'll enjoy breakfast at Plateau Edge, after which we'll start with our program. The day will include sessions with Helen Jane Hearn, Matt Armendariz, and Ree Drummond. We'll also have demos, instructional talks, and all kinds of fun activities with Gaby Dalkin and Lori Lange and, of course, lots of food. Our day will end with a dinner hosted by California Avocado Commission, so dress comfortably and be ready to party!

We'll end our weekend with brunch at Plateau Edge on Sunday, April 28. Pickup at the hotel will be at 9am---we thought we'd give you an extra hour to sleep off that late night hotel party from the night before (yes, we know all about that). It'll be our last chance to gather as a group, talk about our weekend, and say goodbye.

We've reserved a block of rooms at the Springhill Suites Marriott in Temecula, CA (rate code POTLUCK), and transportation form the hotel to Plateau Edge and back will be provided. Please note that pick up and drop off will be from this hotel only, and the room block will be held until December 28, 2012, so please book your rooms here as soon as possible.

We’ll share more info about the Big Traveling Potluck (hashtag #BTP1) the days ahead. Follow us on Twitter (@thebigpotluck) and Facebook for the latest updates.

We look forward to seeing you all in April for food, inspiration, and some big time community.

The Big Potluck

Every now and then, we organize intimate get-togethers for bloggers. We meet, talk, eat, learn, then cry when it ends. It's like camp for grownups. Only better.

The Big Potluck is organized by Maggy and Pam of Three Many Cooks and Erika of The Ivory Hut. Feel free to drop us a line if you have any questions!
