The National Veterans Creative Arts Festival at Home, being held Nov. 30 through Dec. 4, will salute 165 award winning Veterans whose creative and artistic talent earned them first place recognition among their peers.

Find some “stuff” and make your own “Connection.”

Anyone worldwide can see the talent and creativity of our Veterans showcased from the comfort of their own home.

This week we support Veterans in their creative and artistic endeavors. And we provide the 2020 National Veterans Creative Arts competition winners an opportunity to receive recognition for their creative accomplishments. The week will consist of virtual workshops as well as interactive educational sessions.

The festival is co-presented by VA and the American Legion Auxiliary.

Some of the virtual sessions will be open to the general public for viewing.

Here’s how to engage:

  • Nov. 30, 6 p.m. ET – Opening Act – Join us to kick off the festival and enjoy select performances from gold-winning Veteran artists and performers.
  • Dec. 1, noon ET – National VA Art Workshop. Calling all Veterans, families and friends to participate in a National VA Art Workshop. Using the theme of connections, participants will search inside junk drawers, closets, between couch cushions and outdoors to find artistic treasures as inspiration to create their own masterpieces.
