The Veteran Benefit Expo is coming to central Oregon this summer!

The 2017 Veteran Benefit Expo promises “Everything Veteran,” with over 70 different service providers, employers and other resources dedicated to helping veterans and their families thrive in Oregon.

Whatever stage of life you’re in, and whatever your interests or needs, we believe there is something for every Oregon veteran at the Veteran Benefit Expo. Don’t miss it!

— New this year —

Live entertainment: By popular demand, and very much thanks to the support of our sponsors, we are pleased to present a packed line-up of talented performers, including the acoustic folk/soft rock stylings of the DD214s, the harder rocking sound of Got Your Six and the multi-faceted entertainer and comedian Juan Canopii.

Kids zone: Thanks to the generous sponsorship of the St. Charles Health System, the Expo will include a family-friendly children’s area with awesome inflatables, activities and other goodies.

Military displays: The Expo will be host to several different military-themed displays this year, including static displays of military vehicles, a uniform display by the Oregon Uniform Display Museum, and the remarkable new I Am Not Invisible exhibit, which showcases some of the diversity and achievements of Oregon’s women veterans.

 

Location

We are excited to present this year’s Expo at the Bank of the Cascades Center and Deschutes Fair & Expo, one of the premier event centers in the Pacific Northwest! The fairgrounds, 3800 S.E. Airport Way in Redmond, is strategically located at the hub of the Deschutes, Jefferson and Crook tri-county area, only a 15-minute drive from Bend, 20 minutes from Prineville and 25 minutes from Madras. For more information, visit www.expo.deschutes.org.
