Denver Veteran’s Day Parade and Festival
posted by: Guest Blogger
Denver Veterans Day is a family-friendly event on Nov. 11 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. that offers FREE admission to the Parade & Festival! There will be a music stage, kids & family activities, military displays, tons of vendors, and a wide variety of food. The Parade & Festival serves as a celebratory “Thank You” to our Veterans who have fought to ensure our freedoms.
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 American 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.
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. Static displays of both vintage and modern military vehicles will be featured for spectators to engage and take photos with. The festival serves as a celebratory “Thank You” to our Veterans who have fought to ensure our freedoms.
