“Kansas FreedomFest” is a two-day festival over Veterans Day weekend in November. Tenth Avenue Park in Leavenworth will host the events on Nov. 9-10. The goal is to celebrate veterans and raise awareness and funds for veteran support programs in our community. Events include a chili cook-off and bike show Friday evening. The festival will culminate in a Salute to Veterans benefit concert Saturday afternoon with an exceptional lineup of country and rock music featuring Clay Walker, Aaron Tippin and The Marshall Tucker Band. (Veterans and active duty military can get free benefit concert tickets, but must show proof of service at the gate.)
General admission is $30. This is a wonderful opportunity to support our veterans and enjoy a good time. Bring your family and friends. For complete information, visit http://www.kansasfreedomfest.com.
