When is the Parade?

HAV will be hosting the Phoenix Veteran’s Day Parade every year on November 11, 11:00am – 1:00pm.

Did you know Veteran’s Day was first known as Armistice Day, in
honor of the signing of the Armistice to end World War I?

Our Programs

What We Do

We host honor and recognition events to salute our veterans and their loved ones by thanking, honoring, and recognizing them for their service and patriotism to our country. This core value is why we host the Phoenix Veteran’s Day Parade, the Honor Our Heroes Campaign, the High School Essay Competition, and the Pearl Harbor Day Event. We do this because our veterans tell us that our gratitude, honor, and recognition can help them heal. Isn’t that inspiring? A thank you can mean so much.

This is why we host Arizona’s largest parade event each year – the Phoenix Veteran’s Day Parade. Glowing with tributes, recognition, and healing, this event is unique to our veterans and community. We’re not stopping there; we also hope to create other events to help us support this mission. And you can help!

Join Our Sponsors

If you’d like your organization to have a float, balloon, vehicle, marching group or other form of participation in the parade, we have a very limited number of opportunities available. Ask about our Silver Star sponsorship. It includes a parade entry, an ad in the parade program, passes to parade VIP seating, seats at the parade victory party, a logo on parade volunteer t-shirts and our website, AND a verbal thank you by announcers during the parade.

It’s an incredible opportunity to showcase your employee veterans and patriotism!
