While veterans come to the Village to register to participate in the numerous discounts Branson businesses offer them, it also provides them and their families a place to shop for memorabilia, patches, hats, books and organizations that provide information for veterans and their loved ones.

Vendor Village gives returning traders an opportunity to visit with friends they have met through their participation.

Brenda Meadows, BVTF board chairperson, said the non-profit organization’s annual event provides veterans a place to gather for many reasons.

“Veterans Village is there to make heroes of our freedom feel welcomed, appreciated and accepted.” Meadows said. “BVTF wants to make their visits to Branson a special time to remember, as well as highlight Branson’s heart towards honoring past, present and future military personnel.”

Volunteer musicians perform for visitors in the Veterans Village Day Room.
