HONORING THOSE WHO HAVE SERVED

For the first time in almost 100 years, our patriotic Angelenos are coming together on Veteran’s Day to celebrate our members of the U.S. Armed Forces. The Inaugural Veterans Day LA will be held at the LA Memorial Coliseum on November 11th from 9 AM to 3 PM.

Similar to so many major venues in our country, we almost lost one of our hallmark’s of civic pride this year. But, Los Angeles can be proud! Led by the Chair of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission, Supervisor Janice Hahn, and with the support of our patriotic community, we ensured our Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum’s name would be preserved in perpetuity – so that we may continue to properly recognize the immense sacrifices that our veterans made to protect our country.

With the support and assistance of the many impactful members of our community and the Memorial Coliseum as our venue, Veteran's Day LA will be an outstanding re-dedication to our most well-deserving men and women in the largest populace of veterans within our nation. This event will provide a platform for Los Angeles to build upon year after year and will be a profound example to the rest of our country to follow. Visit our website and get your tickets to join us for this free public event that the entire family will enjoy!
