Veterans Day Events for the Whole Family!

Wednesday, Nov 11th is Veterans Day and we'd like to help you get out and celebrate the day in service of our troops and family! 

  • Patrick Ranch Museum will be showcasing the "Early Aviation History of Butte County" starting at 7pm. This educational performance is free for the whole family.
  • Chico Elks Lodge is holding a Veterans Day program starting at 11am. Doors open at 9:30 and the Chico Community Band will begin performing at 10:30. Lunch will be free and includes bean and franks, coffee, and cold drinks. Veterans groups will display memorabilia and historical artifacts at tables arranged around the hall.
  • From 9am to noon, the Veterans Garden Project has free vegetable and plant starts for the community. Snacks and drinks provided, too!
  • Fans of comedy might enjoy a night of laughs with Ralphie May at the El Rey Theater (take a veteran with you, of course).

If you're looking for something to do tonight, choral groups and soloists will perform at Chico High's Williams Theater from 7:30pm to 8:30. It's free to veterans and only $5 for the public.

The day after Veterans Day, Butte College Veterans Resource Center will hold an exhibition including free lunch, military vehicle shows, and information booths, plus a special cake cutting ceremony to honor the troops. It goes from 11am to 2pm and will be held on the center lawn.
