This year’s theme: “No Longer Forgotten, Remembering Korean War Veterans.”
Presented by Honoring Arizona’s Veterans this family friendly event is an impressive tribute to our true heroes — our Veterans. Included are numerous floats, marching bands, color guards, equestrian units, military flyovers, large helium balloons, Veterans Service Organizations and ROTC entries. A 30×60 foot American flag will be carried along the route.
The Phoenix Veterans Day Parade Committee is an all-volunteer, non-profit group of dedicated Veterans, Military, and community leaders who support the mission to ensure our Veterans are recognized on their special day through this parade. Ongoing since 1997, this parade features 45,000 attendees, 100 parade entries, and seven announcers’ booths along the route for attendees to learn more about our Veterans.
The parade route begins at North Phoenix Baptist Church (5757 N Central Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85012). Starting on Montebello Ave, it will continue South on Central and turn East onto Camelback Road. The parade then turns South on 7th St. It will conclude at Indian School Rd — a distance of 2.4 miles.
