VetsFest Music Festival 2018

$745 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 9 people in 7 months
We are raising money to hold another VetsFest in July of 2018.  The purpose is to honor our nation's veterans and bring awareness to the challenges returning veterans face when re-engaging with their families and society in general.

VetsFest is a music event where bands perform all afternoon. There will be a Huey helicoptor landing with a reenactment of troops disembarking and setting up a perimeter and a vintage warplane flyover, as happened in the 2016 event.



We've partnered with the MN Vietnam Veterans Charity and MN Commemorative Air National Guard to provide the airshow.

Vets for Music is a nonprofit 501c3, EIN 47-4322498, and 100% of all profits from the VetsFest will go to support veterans. Please use this EIN for your income tax deduction.

Pat McLaughlin is the executive director of Vets for Music and is organizing this event. He is a member of Disabled American Veterans and has beem actively playing at the Mpls VA Medical Center for the veterans in community living for five years.

The inaugural event in 2016 was a huge succes with over 1000 attendees.
