When is it?
The parade and Veterans Day salute is always held on November 11th - regardless the day of the week (unless it's Sunday). The 2023 salute will be on Saturday. Opening ceremonies usually begin about 10:30 a.m. with the parade stepping off at 11 a.m.
Where is it?
Spectators can picnic along the Trinity while viewing the parade on the west side of downtown Fort Worth. Enjoy watching the bands, JROTC units (the finest of our young citizens), and more. They’ll join civic organizations and veterans’ groups parading down North Forest Park Blvd. along the Clear Fork section of the Trinity Trails System to Rotary Plaza, then back to Panther Island.
Who's doing this?
The City of Fort Worth will again be home to the Tarrant County Veterans Day Parade on Thursday, Nov. 11, 2023. Organized by the Tarrant County Veterans Council, this will be the 104th anniversary of Armistice Day/Veterans Day celebrations in Cowtown. Please join us honoring our exceptional Veteran friends and neighbors.
Why have such an event?
Veterans Day is important because it is a chance to acknowledge the sacrifices of the men and women who have served or are currently serving in the armed forces of the United States. This holiday was originally known as Armistice Day. Unlike Memorial Day - a time of somber reflection - Veterans Day is meant as a salute to all Veterans... past, present and future.
