It's almost time to start seeing those huge spotlights tracing across the night sky. Join in the fun with Memorial VFW Post 1836 in Lufkin for their annual carnival.

JJ Moreno with the Heart of America Shows along with members of the VFW invite you out to the carnival. The VFW Carnival in Lufkin is a fundraiser.

Veterans, current military, and the people of this town benefit from you going out to the Fall Festival. The profits stay right here and are used for the operational and charitable side of the VFW Post 1836 in Lufkin.

Ride The Rides

This is the place to go for all the great rides and live music. With over 40 rides, you'll get more than any event here in East Texas.

These rides are huge. The Fireball, Ferris Wheel, and the OMG  dominate the night sky. On the smaller side, there is a mini-park for the little ones.

Just follow the giant searchlights to get into the most fun you can have for the money in East Texas.


Things We Take For Granted

Parking at this event is free. Entry is also free; anyone can just walk in and play a game or ride the rides.

When you attend events outside of Deep East Texas that is not always the case. That's a huge savings on a night out with the family.

Ride tickets or wristbands must be purchased from carnival vendors and food may be purchased from VFW or carnival.


Thursday, Sept. 30 - 6 pm - 10 pm, $20 wristbands, with 3 non-perishable food items per person receive a $5 discount.
Friday, Oct. 1, 5 pm - 11 pm, $25 wristbands
Saturday, Oct. 2, 2 pm - 11 pm, $30 wristbands
Sunday, Oct. 3, 2 pm - 10 pm, $25 wristbands
