Legion named charity of Iowa music festival

Tree Town Musical Festival in Forest City, Iowa, is proud to announce the official charity for its two-day country music event — The American Legion.

Held at Heritage Park May 23-25, the festival will bring Nashville to Iowa with live performances from several of country music’s hottest stars, such as Brad Paisley, Toby Keith, Scotty McCreery, Brantley Gilbert and Chris Young.

“The support of Tree Town Music Festival is a great display of patriotism and one more reason I’m proud to call Iowa home,” said American Legion Department of Iowa Commander Jim Demarest. “Through the Home Base Iowa initiative, Gov. Terry Branstad has issued a statewide commitment to welcoming newly discharged veterans to live and work in Iowa. Tree Town Music Festival has answered that call through support of The American Legion.”

In addition to music, Tree Town Music Festival will feature beer tents, a variety of food vendors, rock climbing and bounce houses. American Legion service officers from the Department of Iowa will also be in attendance to meet with veterans about claims benefits and opportunities available through the Home Base Iowa initiative.

A three-day general admission passes is $110 per person and a single-day general admission is $60 per person. Use promo code “LEGION” at checkout to receive the discount.

“We strive to reach and support veterans, and Tree Town Music Festival has provided a platform to do just that,” Demarest said. “Tree Town Music Festival is a great addition to The American Legion’s ceremonies honoring our fallen warriors.”
