Since 1919, The American Legion J.B. Clark Post 149 Escondido has been a cornerstone in helping our community, military veterans, and their families. With the help of gracious supporters, we are able to provide assistance, services and donations throughout our community year-round.
This year, in combination with our 100-year birthday celebration, we are proud to announce that we will be hosting the inaugural Escondido Veterans Festival.
Known as Escondido VetFest, the event will take place on November 11, 2019, which is Veterans Day – a nationally recognized holiday remembering all United States military veterans, both past and present.
The days festivities will start with a parade on Grand Avenue, our sponsors will have booths on Maple Street Plaza and patriotic window designs from our downtown businesses will be on display.
Shortly after the parade, a Back-Yard-BBQ will be held at the Veterans Memorial Building on Park Avenue, where more booths, live music, and ceremonies will be held to include recognizing our centennial birthday.
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.
Any amount towards the cost of these activities would be greatly appreciated and all donations are completely tax deductible. This Organization is designated as a Tax-Exempt Veterans Organization under Internal Revenue Code 501(c)(19) and all donations are Tax Exempt under 26 U. S. Code 170(c)(3), Internal Revenue Code of 1954, as amended.
Thank you for your consideration and if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us.
