Veterans Day Tribute

Calendar & Events


Annual Veterans Day Tribute

We gather each year at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month to honor those who have served.

Ormond Memorial Art Museum & Gardens was founded in 1946 by Ormond Beach residents as a living monument to creative freedom and equality of all persons, and to commemorate the service of World War I and World War II veterans who fought valiantly for that ideal. The community event is held under a large tent in our parking lot with music and inspiring speakers. The event is free and open to the public. Ample free parking can be found in the grass lot between The Casements and St. James Episcopal Church.

Join us under the big tent in the OMAM parking lot as we pay tribute to those who defend our freedom.
