Every year, thousands of VFW and Auxiliary delegates gather to represent the organization’s total membership of more than 1.5 million at the weeklong VFW National Convention. While there, our mission is to approve new national priorities to guide our organization as we lobby Congress on issues important to the nation’s veterans, service members and their families.
Convention delegates also elect new leadership, as well as recognize prominent individuals and organizations for their support of veterans and military personnel.
Scheduled for July 16-21, 2022, the 123rd VFW National Convention will be held in Kansas City, Missouri.
There is much more to Kansas City than meets the eye. Unique attractions throughout KC beckon locals and visitors alike to find the city’s hidden gems.

From the world’s best barbecue, to internationally known museums, every aspect of the city possesses a unique KC twist that makes us one of a kind.
