Denver Veterans Day Parade


Saturday, November 11, 2017 • 10:00 am

Parade Starts at 14th St & W Colfax Ave

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.
