Red, White & Blue Festival

Due to Covid-19 regulations, The Bullard Area Chamber of Commerce is disappointed to have to cancel the RWB Festival for 2020.  We hope the community will personally honor the sacrifices and services of veterans and active duty personnel and their families.  


Veterans' Day 2020 is a federal holiday (previously known as Armistice Day) observed annually on November 11, not only in the United States but in many other countries throughout the world. In the United States, it is a day that honours all men and women that have served as military veterans in the United States Armed Forces. Additionally, Veteran's Day 2020 is the anniversary of the signing of the armistice, which ended the World War I hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany in 1918. Veterans Day 2020 should not to mistaken with Memorial Day; Veterans' Day celebrates the service of all United States military veterans, while Memorial Day honours those who died while in military service.

The history of Veterans' Day dates back to the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 when an armistice between Germany and the Allied nations came into effect, bringing an end to World War I. On November 11, 1919, Armistice Day was proclaimed by President Wilson and commemorated United States' Veterans who served in World War I for the first time. In 1926, the United States Congress officially recognized November 11 as the end of World War I and declared that day as the anniversary of the armistice.
