Welcome to the 2016 Military Family Festival!


The mission of the Military Family Festival is to provide our local military families with a day of appreciation and fun sponsored by our local business partners, while also staging the largest resource fair in the region geared toward the needs of military families.

Each October the festival vibrates with the fun of a new kid-friendly theme while our vendors have as much Halloween candy and treats for the kids as their tables can hold. The event welcomes a crowd of thousands eager to have a fun, safe, and wholesome family day focused on their
unique culture.

The 2016 Military Family Festival is a FREE event for military families. This year's theme is literally "Out of This World".

The event is Sunday October 23rd from 12pm-4pm at the Virginia Beach Convention Center, 1000 19th Street, Virginia Beach, VA 23451.

If you or your organization is interested in volunteering or sponsoring this event, please contact Adair Wells at 757-222-5375 or adair.wells@militarynews.com for information.
