HONORING OUR VETERANS PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE

Fort Fest celebrates and honors the sacrifices of our beloved veterans

Over 200 years ago, Fort Jennings was a vital military outpost during the War of 1812. For the last six years, members of area communities have gathered on the historic site of Fort Jennings to celebrate this great history and the sacrifices of all our beloved veterans.

If you have never attended Fort Fest, we invite you to do so. This event has become a moving and healing experience for living veterans and an honorable memorial to those no longer with us.
