Meetups are important occasions when Wikimedians (users of Wikipedia and the sister projects) come together face-to-face generally in an informal basis. These have been going on for several years and in a wide range of places across the world. Where there have been a series of meetups at a locality, they have often developed their own culture. Check the page for previous meetups at any location you are interested in to get a better understanding of this.

Meetups can be arranged via Meta, the mailing lists, or meetup pages on the individual projects. If you have attended a meetup, you can add a little report here (and link to a longer one, if you're in the mood of writing much).
Also see the page for Wikimedia and MediaWiki related events - presentations at conferences, fairs, arts events etc. This is usually a good occasion to meet other people from the Wikimedia crowd.
