Veteran Expo

Veteran Expo

Hosted by Ephrata Lions Club
The event is a way for the community, veterans, and non veterans to be involved, educated, enlightened and inspired to give back to those who have given so much for all of us!
November 12th, 2023
Ephrata American Legion 429 Ballroom 300 Cocalico St
Ephrata, PA 17522

This event is designed to give veteran artisans a place to showcase and sell their creations, veteran businesses a place to sell their wares, and veterans to network with the many support groups out there who give back to them! It will be a place where the community can come support these veterans and support groups and take valuable information back to their loved ones on programs available to them.

Follow the event on Facebook to learn more as we add vendors and if you are interested in being a vendor reach out to Kendra at 717-587-6563 or

It is a free event to attend but we ask that when attending you consider a donation to Stocking for Soldiers (see list below) or a monetary donation that will go right back into veteran support organizations.

Let’s make this a success and continue to grow it into an annual event. Be sure to look through the discussion link for vendors and folks attending!
