November 11, 2016 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Celebrate the brave men and women who have served our country with a Veterans Day Festival at Cape Fear Botanical Garden. Enjoy a community LEGO® American flag build, craft beer, inflatables by Saam’s Party Tents, climbing wall by The Climbing Place, $100 Gift Card Giveaway to your local IGA, local food trucks featuring R Burger & the Mr. Peanut Truck,  and more fun activities for the whole family.

the Fayetteville community has a deep connection with the military due to the close proximity to Fort Bragg, one of the largest military posts in the country.

Cape Fear Botanical Garden will honor our veteran community by extending an invitation to all veterans, active duty service members, their families, and our community to join us for Veteran’s Day at the Garden on November 11th. The date coincides with Nature Connects®: Art with LEGO® Bricks, an award-winning, nationally touring exhibit featuring larger-than-life sculptures built with over 500,000 LEGO® bricks.

Guests can explore the sculptures displayed throughout the Garden, view a World War II mock battle scene created entirely from LEGO® bricks, then get involved at the hands-on build stations and participate in a community build of a LEGO® brick American flag, and more activities.

We believe that this interactive event honors our veterans and the military community, engages their families, and expresses our appreciation for all who serve our country. We invite you to join us as a sponsor of Veteran’s Day at the Garden.


As a thank you to our veterans and active duty service members, your admission is on us!
