Join us for a day of family fun, food and fantastic company to empower and support veterans and ex-service people throughout the ACT region.

The ACT 2024 Veteran’s and Families’ Expo will bring together a range of stallholders providing information, advice and referral on a range of supports and programs available in the Canberra region, as well as informative presentations, a designated quiet space, activities for kids and families and food and drink options.

Come along as our Hughes Community Centre is transformed into a vital hub of information, resources and connection that joins together organisations and people who really want to make a difference in the lives of Veterans and their families.

Entry is free, with three targeted sessions:

  • 10am-11am – quiet hour
  • 11am-1pm – Session 1 (ageing and transition focus with presentations and workshops)
  • 1pm-3pm – Session 2 (family fun and activities)

Please note: session times are indicative and entry available for all cohorts all day.
