Third Annual Auto and Motorcycle Veterans Tribute Show returns to Phoenixville | Local News
PHOENIXVILLE – The Valley Forge Chapter of the Freedoms Foundation is sponsoring the third annual Veterans and Motorcycles Tribute Fair on Saturday, August 28, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the foundation’s campus, 1601 Valley Forge Road.
The rainy date is Sunday August 29th. The decision to postpone the show or not will be made by Friday afternoon at the latest.
The show was canceled last year due to COVID-19, and the Freedoms Foundation Valley Forge Chapter is particularly excited and honored to honor, thank and pay tribute once again to the region’s veterans. The show is free for spectators. A free parking is available.
“Our veterans and military personnel serve and sacrifice so much to defend and protect our freedom,” said Amy Braccia, president of the Valley Forge Chapter Freedoms Foundation. “We are honored to thank them and honor them for all they do for America.”
The Tribute to Veterans Car and Bike Show features classic and vintage cars, imports, trucks and motorcycles competing for trophies, awards and prizes. Hundreds of cars from the tri-state area attended our first and second shows and we expect a great turnout this year.
New this year: Medal of Honor Grove tours will be available by golf cart. The Medal of Honor Grove is the oldest living memorial honoring the 3,508 U.S. servicemen – and one woman – who received this highest military honor. There is no charge for the visit; all donations will go to The Friends of the Medal of Honor Grove, a 501-C3 nonprofit, which maintains and beautifies The Medal of Honor Grove.
The Veterans Tribute Auto and Bike Show is free and open to the public.
Participants register on the day of the show for an entrance fee of $ 20. Food and refreshments will be available. Profits go to veterans organizations, local hero awards, scholarships and youth education, the Medal of Honor Grove, and many other charitable initiatives.
The organizers will also have face painting for the kids, 50/50 draws, contests, T-shirts and gift bags for the first 100 veterans.
