The 4th Annual Celebration of Freedom will be held September 9-10, 2022 (Sofball Tournament will conclude on the 11th) at Columbia County Fairgrounds, 1 Fairgrounds Road, Portage, WI. In the first 3 years, this statewide community event has raised over $70,000 for Legion Wisconsin Programs. What can we do with $70,000? It could sponsor over 140 Veterans to Camp, help thousands of Veterans and their families meet their financial needs during hard times, annually send 54 Legion All-Stars to play at American Family Field or send over 200 boys to Badger Boys State to name a few.

This is a STATE-WIDE LEGION FAMILY community event that will feature a WWII Traveling Memorial, live entertainment by Best Practice, Road Trip and Drew Henderson, food and drink, adult softball tournament, chili cook off and more.
