Heroes Honor Festival Welcomes Vietnam Veterans To Daytona Speedway

May 27 - May 28

Vietnam veterans will get the homecoming celebration they never received this Memorial Day weekend at the Daytona International Speedway.

Event organizer Ben Peterson, who served after 9/11, was moved to action when Vietnam veterans lined the airfields for his generation as they returned home. He says it’s never too late to show the same respect and gratitude to a generation that was faced with disgust and shame after their heroic sacrifice for our country.

WHAT: The inaugural Heroes Honor Festival

WHEN: May 27th – 28th, 2022 (Memorial Day Weekend)

WHERE: Daytona International Speedway, Daytona, FL

Festival-goers will enjoy live music, flyovers, a candlelight vigil, parades, division reunions, fireworks, and all the fanfare you’d expect at what is anticipated to be “the biggest, baddest, most patriotic celebration” for Vietnam veterans.

Tickets are available for purchase here.
