Our American Legion Post has been welcoming all VETERANS from every branch of our Armed Forces since 1919. We are blessed with truly wonderful patriotic citizens from the Escondido community who help us sponsor scholarships for the children within the community and give aid and assistance to our local veterans, and their families.
Escondido VetFest – put on by American Legion JB Clark Post 149 – is looking forward to the fourth VetFest Parade and Festival to be held November 11, 2023. If you would like to be a part of this great event, please fill out a participant application, or fill out a volunteer application to help, or be a sponsor.
We would like to thank our 2023 Title Sponsors – Palomar Health Medical Group, Palomar Health Foundation, and Harrah's Rincon Resort. Without their generosity, we would not be able to make Escondido's VetFest a success! See our 2019 Sponsors, 2021 Sponsors and 2022 Sponsors.
We can only honor our local veterans with your help. Whether you want to have an entry in the parade, decorate your store front for the contest, volunteer, sponsor, or all of the above, you need to start here and sign up for the appropriate activity.
Be a part of our 4th Annual Escondido VetFest. Register for our VetFest Parade and a spot at either of our VetFest festivals.
