Denver Veterans Day Parade & Festival

November 8, 2017|Posted in: Community Event, Military Appreciation

Join us as Denver comes together to celebrate and commemorate our nation’s heroes. (Hosted by Colorado Veterans Project) For more information, visit www.denverveteransday.com.

The Denver Veterans Day Parade is comprised of local Veterans organizations and supporters. Thousands of spectators line Civic Center Park and nearby streets to show respect and honor for our local Veterans. Please join the community in the appreciation of our Veterans and support this important cause.

The Parade is broken down into serials that represent a different conflict in military history: Revolutionary War, Civil War, WWI, WWII, etc. This will allow our spectators to brush up on their military history as well as add a sense of excitement to the event. Each serial representation will feature military memorabilia from that era – i.e. old uniforms, vehicles, and weapons.  The Veterans organizations have agreed to march together to showcase their organization’s historical roots in these eras. Spectators will also enjoy corporate floats, car clubs, marching units, bands, and more.

We hope you can join the Denver Veterans Day Parade as a participant or spectator and be part of this wonderful celebration to salute our nation’s heroes!

Immediately following the Parade, participants and spectators are encouraged to join us in Civic Center Park for the Denver Veterans Day Festival. This family-friendly event offers FREE admission, a music stage, kids & family activities, military displays, tons of vendors, and a wide variety of food. The festival serves as a celebratory “Thank You” to our Veterans who have fought to ensure our freedoms.

Static displays of both vintage and modern military vehicles will be featured for spectators to engage and take photos with. Uniformed men and women will be in attendance and encouraged to interact with children and adults.
