We will be announcing more details shortly; stay tuned!
The purpose of the NYC Veterans Day Parade is to honor our veterans, raise awareness of those who serve them, and to salute members of our currently serving military. It is a non-partisan, non-political event, and may not be used as a platform for any other purpose or political agenda.
This year’s Parade marks a number of anniversaries: the 75th of the end of World War II, the 70th of the beginning of the Korean War, and the 30th of the end of the Panama Invasion and the beginning of Desert Shield.
The United States Navy is this year’s featured military branch. As always, the Army, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard will also be represented!
Grand Marshal & Honorary Marshals
We will announcing our Grand Marshal and honorary leadership shortly; stay tuned!
The parade features groups representing veterans of all eras, military units, civic and youth groups (including Junior ROTC), businesses, and more. Floats, military and vintage vehicles and other special elements add to the spectacle and excitement.
The parade and related events will occur on Wednesday, November 11 (Veterans Day), rain or shine. Stay tuned for updates on our 2020 schedule!
