Event Description

For veterans who need to speak out but aren't keen on the idea of talking, it's a way to express themselves. Not only is it a friendly outlet to show creat skills, it's also part of therapy long after many have come home from war.

Registration deadline is Tues, Feb 19 at 4:00pm.

All veterans enrolled for care in the VA can participate. There are 53 art categories. There will also be a separate talent competition as well.

More than 3,725 veterans rom across the US participated last year. Four of Milwaukee's vets were in the top three. One of them took first place and another ranked third nationally.

The first stage of the festival will take place on Mon., Feb. 25.
