While there are endless reasons to be in Branson for Veterans Homecoming Week, here’s a look at six activities we're especially looking forward to observing at this year's event (click on the link for each activity for more information):

1. Veterans Celebration Show

Freedom Encounter Theater, 3220 Falls Pkwy

Held at a new venue this year, the Freedom Encounter Theater, Veterans Celebration Show is the kick-off of Veterans Week in Branson where we salute our veterans and say THANK YOU for your service to our country!  We will have a big superstar line up and you won't want to miss it!


2. Vietnam Veterans Reunion

AmericInn by Wyndham Branson, 275 Tanger Blvd

At the Vietnam Veteran's Reunion, there will be hot meals, entertainment, door prizes, and lots of time to talk!


3. Veterans Village 

Buildings 2 & 3, 1000 Pat Nash Drive

Veterans Village is open in the Ballparks of America complex. Come enjoy the camaraderie with other veterans at the Village’s Expo Hall, Fellowship Hall and a Mess Hall with free lunch to veterans. Informal jam sessions are part of the Fellowship Hall, so bring your instrument if you would like to take part!


4. Homefront Heroes/Spouses Luncheon

AmericInn by Wyndham Branson, 275 Tanger Blvd

Holding down the Homefront while loved ones served our country has taken a toll on military families. For those serving, knowing someone was waiting for them and holding down things at home was a great comfort. Pre-registration required. See event here


5. 27th Military Gala and Banquet 

Chateau on the Lake 415 N State Hwy 265

All branches and all wars as well as the public are welcome to the 27th Military Gala & Banquet! A dinner will be held as well as a UMC birthday cake cutting, DJ/Dancing, a fireworks show, and entertainment. Business, After 5, Mess Dress, and formal wear are the appropriate attire.


6. Veterans Day Parade 

Downtown Branson

Everybody loves a parade! Join the fun at the annual Veterans Day Parade in Downtown Branson. See live bands, local veterans' chapters, performers, and much more as you walk the historic downtown area. The parade is organized by the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 913 and always marks a fantastic grand event to Veterans Homecoming Week.
