VetFest

VetFest is the biggest Veteran & First Responder event in the Ark-La-Tex!

Held annually in November on the weekend nearest to Veterans Day, VetFest was established in 2020 by members of the Department of Louisiana Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4588 to support those who serve by uniting, informing, and ultimately strengthening the Veterans & First Responders within our community.

Our Veterans & First Responders often feel alone and isolated because of the traumatic events that are all part of protecting & serving. They’re afraid to ask for help because they fear judgment. They feel isolated because not everyone understands. Some turn to drugs & alcohol to dull the pain, while others resort to suicide because the pain is too much to bear. 

Assuring our Veterans & First Responders that they are not alone and letting them know It’s okay to not be okay gives them the strength and courage they may need to seek assistance. 

VetFest allows us to unite our local first responder community to ensure they are informed and have access to the organizations that exist solely to serve them, bridging the gap between our heroes and the help they need to live happy and healthy lives while offering a platform to meet and interact with others just like themselves. 

But VetFest isn’t just for Veterans & First Responders; the community they serve is a big part of the recovery process, and that’s why everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.
