2017 Veterans Day Parade & Ceremony

September 27, 2017

Click here to view and/or download the Veterans Day Flyer and help us spread the word!

Show your support for local Veterans at our annual Veterans Day Parade & Ceremony coming up Saturday, November 11.  All Veterans, their families, and community members are invited to attend!  We want to make this the biggest and best Veterans Day Parade yet!

The Veterans Day Parade starts at 9:30 a.m.  at the Veterans Stadium (corner of 26th & State streets) and marches south on State Street, ending at the Erie VAMC.

The Veterans Day Ceremony starts at 11 a.m. at Jefferson School located directly across from the Erie VAMC on 38th Street.

We're asking the community to get involved:
  1. Sign up to march in the Veterans Day Parade!  You don't have to be a Veteran or Veteran-related organization to sign up to just have to show your support for Veterans!  To sign up, call Ken Sawdey at 814-866-9565.
  2. Show your support from the side-lines!  We need a CROWD this year.  We're asking the community to LINE State Street between 26th & 38th Streets to cheer on local Veterans.  Make signs, wave your flags, and show your support!

Veterans served and sacrificed so much for their communities.  The least we can do is show our gratitude and show up for them!  Please join us as we celebrate our Veterans and as we remember their selfless service for our country. 

For questions about the Veterans Day Parade & Ceremony, please call Erie VAMC's Voluntary Service Office at 814-860-2453.
