Veterans Day Festival and Journey for Change Walk

  • Date: 11/11/2019 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM
  • Location: Front and Water Street - STREET CLOSURE
    Santa Cruz, California 95060

At the festival, there will be live music, food, and many of our local Veteran organizations representing our community. This is a free all-ages festival! Please come and celebrate with your community our Veterans and honor their service and sacrifice.

Journey for Change will be walking 22 laps around downtown Santa Cruz to raise awareness of the veterans who die by suicide each day. At the end of each lap we will place a rose on a "ghost chair" by the WWI Memorial (Pacific Avenue and Front Street). These empty chairs memorialize those who are no longer with us.

Everyone is encouraged to join us on the walk, whether it is for a single lap or the entire event.
