Family is at the center of every sacrifice made by military veterans. Without asking for anything in return, brave men and women have and continue to willingly sacrifice everything they have to in order to protect and support Americans. Each veterans' decision to serve is a life-changing sacrifice that supports the lives of each American family — everyday.
This Saturday, October 5, your family can celebrate veterans at the 4th annual Vetfest at Granny White park in Brentwood. The free event runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m, and aims to recognize and celebrate those who have served from the local community, while also increasing awareness about available resources for military families.
Vetfest includes live music, art exhibits, food trucks, historical military displays, a kid zone, lawn games, prize giveaways, a raffle and representations from veteran-owned business and veteran organizations.
The event offers a perfect opportunity for your family to show support for military members and their families in Williamson County in addition to those who are whom are currently serving.
The event will be held at Granny White Park in Brentwood at 610 Granny White Pike. Prior to the event at 11 a.m. a "Heroes Stroll" will take place at 9:30 a.m, with registration taking placing from 8:30 to 9:15 a.m. There will be a ceremony held for the veterans at 2 p.m. and the Nashville Predators Energy Team will make an appearance at 3 p.m. The event is sponsored by Vetlinx, a local non-profit organization that seeks to support veterans in Middle Tennessee.
