Emporia Main Street is proud to offer you the opportunity to honor a veteran or someone currently active in the military while at the same time celebrating Emporia as the founding city of Veterans Day.  Each year over 260 Veterans banners hang downtown and at Emporia State University for approximately one month in conjunction with Veteran’s Day activities for four consecutive years. After the banner's four year term is completed, the banner is retired. Emporia Main Street will then contact sponsors to give them the retired banner and give sponsors the opportunity to reauthorize a new banner.
