Thank You.

We salute our veterans and their loved ones
in thanks for their patriotism & service to our country.


We provide honor and recognition events to thank our veterans. We do this because they tell us the gratitude, the honor, the recognition for their service helps 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 special to our veterans and our community. We’re not stopping there, we also hope to create other events to help us support this mission. And you can help!

The Parade

Join 45,000 specatators in Central Phoenix for this year’s parade. Let’s celebrate our veterans and patriotism!

Spectators & Participants


State-Wide Exposure


Arizona Veterans Recognized




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!

Last year’s parade was virtual, but we fully expect the 2021 parade to hit the streets in fine style, like usual. We’ll let you know if anything changes!

When is the Parade?

AV will be hosting the Phoenix Veteran’s Day Parade on Thursday, November 11, 2021.

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

Our heroes. Their stories.

If you or someone you love is a military veteran, please join us and share your gratitude on our virtual ‘Thank You Veterans’ wall. You can connect with us on Facebook and Instagram, tag us, and share what the saying “Thank You Veterans” means to you.
