Veterans and the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts

Since 1969 when the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts opened its doors, we have been proud to be considered part of the Milwaukee County’s War Memorial honoring those who have bravely served our country.

ANNUAL FLAG DAY CELEBRATION

As part of our continued commitment to honor veterans for their heroic service, we will host the Flag Day Celebration each year on the Peck Pavilion Stage.  The program includes a Presentation of Colors, Invocation, Moment of Silence & POW Respect, a Keynote Speaker and more.  Following our program, the U.S. Immigration Office will naturalize more than 100 new United States citizens, right here on our grounds.

We hope you’ll join us as we “Honor the Dead by Serving the Living” at this very special tribute to the men and women of our military.
