During each year the Veterans Memorial Center hosts many special events by other veteran organizations. These range from a celebration of the Last Naval Battle of Cape Canaveral in the Revolutionary War by the Sons and Daughters of the American Revolution in March to the Marine organized “Toys for Tots” in December. Many private events also take place at the Center when groups rent our space, a major source of our funding since all parts of our public venue components — the Museum, the Library and the Plaza are all completely FREE.
The BVC/VMC itself hosts three very special ceremonies each year with its Memorial Day (late May), Veterans Day (November 11) and annual Christmas Party and Lunch (Early December for members and guests). The Veterans Day and museum grand opening ceremonies in 2016 drew over 700 people and included many young people and special events to mark this National Holiday. Please join us for these events. Veteran or not, they will mean something special to you as an American and by having many people attend, the veterans of the BVC/VMC know America still cares about their service and sacrifice.
In addition to the above major events, the VMC hosts many ongoing events including private functions for which space is rented. Because the VMC is an umbrella organization for the entire county, we also publicize and support other veterans events throughout Brevard during the year.
