Hosted by The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 211

To be held in Desbarats, Ontario

 The ‘Vettes for Vets’ Festival . . . Is a great idea driven by a desire to commemorate and honour our war and peace keeping veterans who sacrificed comfort of home, enjoyment of family, culture and way of life to uphold our freedoms . . . freedoms we enjoy.

 The festival will be a weekend filled with excitement for everyone. The Corvette Clubs and Owners of North America are providing an awesome gathering of North America’s most desired sports car. More than a few generations have enjoyed this great symbol of fun – an integral part of life in Canada and the United States.

 Toes will be tapping and memories reacquainted to the sound of Tribute artists

performing hits by Elvis and Legends of Country Music stars, including Johnny Cash, June Carter-Cash, Dolly Parton & Shania Twain. To the added pleasure of our guests, Canada’s own Rhythm and Blues Band, Andre and the J Tones.

 Armed Forces Veterans returning from a theatre of war or peace keeping duties often find themselves without shelter and in need of support. Proceeds raised during this event to be administered through the Royal Canadian

Legion Ontario Provincial Command for the Homeless Veterans Program, “Leave The Streets Behind.”
