National Creative Arts Festival Florida April 2022

The National Creative Arts Festival is coming to Florida in April 2022. The American Legion Auxiliary Department of Florida will be in charge of the Hospitality Suite (no alcohol or drugs) for the Veterans and their care givers that will be participating in the Festival.

UPDATE: Anyone attending the National Creative Arts Festival in April will be required to show proof of COVID vaccine and booster. At this time a medical waiver will not be allowed. All volunteers will need to show proof along with agreeing to being testing each day for COVID. If there is any updates, they will be posted here.

At this time the hotel and venue has not been placed under contract. As soon as the Department has that information we will release it here.

Veterans Service Organization

Think about the last time you received what you needed when you needed it. Did you call it a gift or even a miracle? In the American Legion Auxiliary that “need meeting-gift giving” happens continuously. And it’s possible because as the largest women’s patriotic service organization in the world our membership of more than 850,000 strong is fiercely dedicated to serving, helping, and meeting needs. Our focus is what it’s always been: servicemembers, veterans and their families in their communities. And our members produce annual statistics in the millions.

The women of the American Legion Auxiliary make a difference in the lives of all Americans. They educate children, organize community events and help our nation’s veterans through legislative action and volunteerism. The American Legion Auxiliary is the world’s largest women’s patriotic service organization with nearly 1 million members in 10,100 communities. Auxiliary members are a unique group of women, joined in the fellowship of volunteerism, patriotism and dedicated to veterans, young people and communities.

Our Role

We take our role as a veterans service organization seriously; meeting the needs of veterans and keeping those needs front and center in the minds of the American public!

Few people realize that:

  • The Auxiliary and the Legion are often centers for community and civic activities in mid-America, and provide a focal point for citizens’ involvement.
  • The Auxiliary raises more than $18 million every year and reinvests those funds in VA medical centers and community programs.
  • Thousands of hours are devoted to crime prevention programs, instructing children, the elderly and the general public on safety, crime prevention and protection within the community.
  • Auxiliary volunteers are the backbone of assistance in the 171 VA Medical Centers.
  • They not only provide diversion and entertainment for patients, but assist the hospital staff in physical and psychological therapy, clerical and many other duties that would otherwise cost American taxpayers millions of dollars.
  • The Auxiliary deals with issues such as drug and alcohol abuse, missing and abused children, teen suicide and teen pregnancy. Its services touch the lives of all Americans directly or indirectly.
  • More than 20 nationwide programs receive support and financial aid from the American Legion Auxiliary.
