122nd VFW National Convention 


Baltimore, Maryland, has been selected to host the 122nd VFW National Convention, July 31-Aug. 5, 2021.

Every year, thousands of VFW and Auxiliary delegates gather to represent the organization’s total membership of more than 1.5 million at the weeklong convention. While there, our mission is to approve new national priorities to guide our organization as we lobby Congress on issues important to the nation’s veterans, service members and their families.

Distinguished guests, award recipients, as well as a number of notable speakers are among those invited to participate in the event.

Known as "Charm City," Baltimore offers VFW and Auxiliary members the chance to explore a vibrant community that honors the past while still keeping a keen eye on the future. A truly authentic American city, Baltimore welcomes visitors to explore its diverse heritage and culture, distinct neighborhoods, world-class attractions and award-winning restaurants. Discover everything Baltimore has to offer.

The health and well-being of our members, guests and staff is a top priority for the VFW, and we are dedicated to planning a safe event. As the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic and social-distancing requirements change, our plans for an in-person convention may be impacted. Check back regularly for updates on our National Convention plans.
