Seas the Day 2023

September 17, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT


2023 Seas the Day event! FREE event for all veterans, active-duty military of all Services, active/inactive Reserve and Guard & families.

This year we are glad to be partnered again with and sponsored by Albemarle County Parks and Recreation Department and Mission BBQ.

One (1) registration per family. SEP 17, 2023 will be the seventh annual production of a Veterans Outdoor Event. Put on by several local organizations and veterans’ groups. Our 2022 (sixth) was a greater success. It has grown into a conglomerate of local organizations and veterans’ groups coming together to put on this spectacular event.

Our goal for this event is to provide a free, fun day for veterans, active duty, active/inactive reserve, guard and their families in Charlottesville and surrounding communities. We will have plenty of leisurely outdoor activities, including water activities, games for children, demonstrations, ‘Touch the Truck’ display, and tables with information from organizations that support and provide opportunities to veterans. Please note our location is at Walnut Creek Park. There will be be kayaking, paddle-boarding, spin and fly-fishing instructions offered; and we encourage anyone wishing to fish, have valid licenses and your own fishing tools to cast a line, while at our event. You are also welcome to bring your own boats to the event; please bring appropriate PFDs. As in past years, we will raffle off local business items and gift cards plus a grand prize of a new kayak. The event will feature a picnic catered by Mission BBQ. We hope active duty, veterans and their families are as excited as we are to have this day of fun and appreciation for our local veterans!
