Palm Beach County Veterans Day events

Veterans Day celebrates active duty and retired men and women who chose to serve their country with pride. Here is a list of some of the festivities we found and they include breakfasts, vendors, car shows music and entertainment.

Veterans are also being honored with events in Miami-Dade Countyevents in Broward County and a variety of free meals and other deals around the nation.

We urge everyone to show their appreciation for the members of our armed forces. Unlike Memorial Day that honors those who are no longer with us, Veterans Day is a recognition of those who serve(d) and it is a celebration of life!
