Huntsville loves to celebrate our military community as we are home to the U.S. Army’s Redstone Arsenal and we have a strong military heritage. The community has many Veterans Day activities celebrating all of those who have served in the U.S. military.
Free Admission to Attractions
Veterans and their families get free or discounted admission this Veterans Day to several Huntsville attractions, including the U.S. Space & Rocket Center and the Huntsville Botanical Garden, just come prepared to show your military identification.
Also the new ‘Parks for Patriots’ statewide program grants free admission for veterans to Alabama State Parks, so a visit to Monte Sano State Park is now free for veterans on Veterans Day and every day!
Celebrate Veterans Day with the Huntsville Havoc on Sunday, November 10th! General Admission tickets are available for veterans for $5 at the Von Braun Center box office. Everyone can enjoy $2 hotdogs, $2 soda, and $2 beer at the game.
