KC Skyline

119th VFW National Convention 

Kansas City, Mo., has been selected as host city for the 119th VFW National Convention, July 21-25, 2018.

Thousands of VFW and Auxiliary members will convene from all over the world at the Bartle Hall Kansas City Convention Center, in a city that is having its moment now! The Huffington Post recently named Kansas City the coolest city in America, Travel + Leisure has named KC the #1 affordable getaway 5 years in a row and Yelp named the Nelson-Atkins Museum the best in the country.

From its top chefs that keep winning notoriety to its makers and doers, like Baldwin Denim and Christopher Elbow Chocolates, who keep creating a nationwide buzz ... if there were an award for making visitors feel like locals, Kansas City would grab that title, too. Plan your visit and see everything Kansas City has to offer here

Housing for the 119th VFW National Convention has closed, but rooms may still be available if you hurry. The VFW National Headquarters will be open for self-guided tours from 8:15-4:30 p.m., July 21-25.

Stay tuned for additional information as it becomes available.
