For the past 22 years in celebration of our Armed Forces, the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce has brought the city and business community together to honor and show appreciation to all of the men and women of our armed forces and their families with a day of FREE Food and Entertainment titled “Operation Appreciation.”

On Saturday,May 18, 2024, the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce will again bring the business community and area residents together to provide a day of recognition to all active-duty military stationed on Marine Corps Base Camp Joseph H. Pendleton and nearby military bases, with a host of activities including a Children’s Fun Zone, live entertainment and a FREE full catered meal served by local military and political dignitaries.

The souvenir program will be distributed to each person entering the event. The program is also distributed aboard Camp Pendleton and surrounding areas one week prior to the event.
