Event Details

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.

Parade: 9:30 – 11am
Festivities will include a parade on Grand Avenue from 9:30 am – 11:00 am, art display, patriotic storefront decorating contest, and will culminate with a Backyard BBQ and Veterans Day Ceremony at the American Legion Hall from noon to 4:00 pm.

The parade route starts on Grand Ave at the corner of N. Broadway heading East on Grand. It will continue East on Grand to N. Juniper where the Parade will perform a U-Turn and proceed back down Grand Ave. to the Finish Line at the corner of N. Broadway.
