This year The American Legion will be conducting its 100th National Convention in Minneapolis, MN, August 24 – 30, 2018. The Legion is proud that the state of Minnesota and specifically the city of Minneapolis will be welcoming The American Legion Family members to its fine city. These members gather at the National Convention to help further their cause of patriotism and support for our servicemembers past and present. The National Convention of The American Legion includes the following separate events: the American Legion Auxiliary’s National Convention, the Sons of The American Legion’s Convention and The American Legion Riders Legacy Run. The combined membership of these organizations is nearly 3 million worldwide.
Along with the above-mentioned and the annual business meeting, other significant elements of the National Convention include a parade, patriotic memorial service, exhibits, general sessions with nationally acclaimed keynote speakers, color guard and band contests, receptions and banquets.
