The tiny art community of Three Rivers, California, located at the entrance to Sequoia National Park, says “thank you” to those who serve or have served in our Military or as First Responders with 20 percent discounts and special events, every January through March.  Free passes for active Military at Lake Kaweah and Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.

Every year in the Sequoia Foothills, from Jan. 1 - March 31, participating businesses say “thank you” by offering 20 percent off whatever we produce or provide (or equivalent gifts) to those who have served or are serving, in the Military or as a First Responder. 

Participants include several of our artists, many of our restaurants and lodging places, horseback riding with Christy Wood of Wood ‘N’ Horse Training Stables, and even our brand-new Three Rivers Brewing Company! 

For more information, contact community volunteers, Leah Catherine Launey or Peter Sodhy, by calling 559-561-4270, emailing us at [email protected], or by going to our public face book page located at https://www.facebook.com/peter.sodhy. The information will be in our “Local Events ­— coming soon!” face book album, where we post event fliers in chronological order. 

We’d love to help you plan your visit and enjoy your discounts!  In addition, all year round, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks offer free passes for active military, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Lake Kaweah honors that pass.
