Oceanside’s Operation Appreciation 2016

Operation Appreciation will take place at the Oceanside Pier Amphitheatre on May 21, 2016. This is a fantastic event brought to you by the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce. The business community and area residents come together to provide a day of recognition to all active-duty military stationed on Camp Pendleton and nearby military bases. My family attends this event every year and we love it!

Operation Appreciation

Thousands of active duty military and their family members are treated to a day of free food, carnival rides and entertainment at the Oceanside Pier Amphitheatre.

The fun begins at 11:00 a.m. and last until 4:00 p.m. The day consists of a host of activities: including a great children’s fun zone with carnival rides, inflatable jumps, rock climbing wall, kid’s crafts and face painting.

Live entertainment will be featured at the amphitheater all day.  The Heroes, a multi-award winning show and dance band, will entertained our guests.
Participating Restaurants include Buffalo Wild Wings, Pick Up Stix, Hunter Steakhouse, San Luis Rey Bakery and Domino’s Pizza.
The beach will be loaded with military land and amphibious displays, including the LCAC, for people to explore and learn about. The EOD team will be on hand to demonstrate their latest equipment and answer questions.
All Active Duty Military and their dependents must bring an Active Duty Military ID Card or a Dependent ID Card to get unlimited rides, activities, and a free lunch. This event is open to the public. Tickets are available for purchase for children’s rides. Entertainment and military displays are free to everyone.
Whether you are a civilian who wants to show your gratitude and enjoy a day of fun, or a member of the military family, this is a day for you: Show your appreciation or to be appreciated!
