Be In The Parade

Since 1919, American Legion Post 149 Escondido has been a cornerstone of our community. We are proud to be hosting the inaugural Escondido Veterans Festival. The cost of the VetFest will be fully paid by The American Legion Post 149 and through donations and sponsorships. We hope that you or your organization will consider supporting the event by becoming a sponsor or donating.
In order to stage this community event, we will be relying on the generosity of almost 100 volunteers. Would you be interested in helping us as a street marshall, barricade monitor, announcer, or check-in assistant?
Join us on Monday, November 11, 2019, to honor our local heros: Military Veterans of Escondido. This is the first annual Escondido VetFest, and will raise funds for the American Legion Post 149 in Escondido. Help us celebrate 100 years of The American Legion, and 100 years of American Legion Post 149.
