This year we have workshops and performances all weekend long: Meditation, Tai Chi, writer’s workshops, music and more. An authentic Korean War Era Army Jeep will be on display. Come check out the band Jerry the Bulldog, Saturday afternoon.

The Veteran Arts Showcase features visual artists, crafters, writers, poets, musicians, and performers who are active duty military, veterans, or their family members. We especially encourage the civilian community to join us in this vital celebration of current and former members of the Armed Forces and their families. Tell everyone you know, this is more than just an Art Show!
