Honor and support our veterans at the New York City Veterans Day Parade, the largest event of its kind in the nation.  It’s an extraordinary performance opportunity marked with high-stepping energy and pride for all involved.  Participants will march along Fifth Avenue, past such famous landmarks as the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, and Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, cheered by an enthusiastic crowd of thousands. Grab your spot in the heart of the action and salute our American heroes!


About the Parade

The New York City Veteran’s Day Parade has honored veterans and their causes for more than 100 years.  Hundreds of thousands of spectators line up to watch floats, military and vintage vehicles, military units, and marching bands from across the country.  More than 20,000 patriotic participants make their way up Fifth Avenue from 26th to 46th Street (about 1.2 miles).  Your band will march past NYC icons like the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. The parade is televised locally and streamed online so family and friends can watch from home.
