Phoenix Veterans Day Parade

Started in 1997, the Phoenix Veterans Day Parade’s mission is to create an annual Veterans Day Parade to honor the contributions of our United States Veterans, and help build a patriotic Phoenix community spirit that recognizes the sacrifices Veterans make for our country. This year’s theme is “Silent Sacrifice: Honoring Our Cold War Veterans.”

Each year the parade team selects a theme to honor the era of veterans. The rotations start with World War II and continues through each major conflict to present day. These include:

  • World War II
  • Korean War
  • Vietnam War
  • Cold War
  • Desert Storm
  • Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan)
  • Operation Iraqi Freedom
