All Washtenaw County military veterans and their families are invited for a day of free food, fun and information at Washtenaw Vet Fest 2023 on Saturday, July 22.

The Wadhams Veterans Center at Washtenaw Community College is organizing the second annual event, with assistance from multiple veterans organizations in the county. It runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., with activities set up near the main entrance to the WCC campus off East Huron River Road (see map/directions).

Pre-registration is required. Sign up at washtenawcountyvetfest.eventbrite.com.

“The purpose of Vet Fest is to provide a day of fun and relaxation for local veterans and their families, all while giving them access to the major resource and benefit providers in the area,” said WCC Wadhams Veterans Center director Carole Osborne. “It’s sort of a one-stop-shop for veterans and gives service providers an opportunity to connect with the community they serve.”

Events and activities are planned for all ages, including:

Free Food
Live Music
Cold Treats
Hourly Raffles
Military & EMS Vehicles
Kids Activities (bounce house, face painting, dunk tank, photo booth)
Resource Provider Exhibits
Among the military vehicles expected to be on location are a World War II ammunition truck and a Boeing CH-47 Chinook helicopter that National Guard personnel will fly in from Selfridge Air National Guard Base.


American Legion Post 46 in Ann Arbor, the Washtenaw County Department of Veterans Affairs, the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 310 and the Ann Arbor Veterans Affairs Medical Center have provided significant financial and planning support of Washtenaw County Vet Fest.
