Temecula Hosts Annual Patriotic Salute to Veterans

The City of Temecula proudly presents our annual Patriotic Salute to Veterans on Monday, November 11th at 6:00 pm at the Temecula Civic Center (41000 Main Street). The community is invited to attend as we honor all service members at this free Veterans Day concert. A free picnic dinner will be served from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm in Town Square Park to the first 500 patrons in line.

Please join us as we honor and thank our veterans for their selfless service. Bring your entire family, your friends, lawn chairs, and warm blankets to enjoy a wonderful evening under the stars. The event will feature remarks by City dignitaries, the presentation of military banners to recognize active military personnel from the City’s Military Banner Program, and a live orchestra performance.

The Veterans Day celebration highlight is the 90-minute professional concert under the stars, A Patriotic Salute to Veterans, presented by the Temecula Valley Symphony conducted by the symphony’s Assistant Conductor, Zun-Hin Woo and will feature special guest artist Sherie Rae Parker as Bette Midler. The program includes several of Midler’s big hits such as Boogie Woogie.

Bugle Boy, From A Distance, The Rose, Wind Beneath My Wings, and more. Plus, the orchestra will perform a wide selection of patriotic favorites including Stars and Stripes Forever by Sousa, Armed Forces Salute, Carmen Dragon’s arrangement of America the Beautiful, and music from the video game World of Warcraft, as well as several other selections.

This is just another one of the many reasons we all LOVE Temecula! For more information, please contact the Community Services Department at
