PARADE HISTORY

25+ Years of Celebrating Veterans

Started in 1997, the Phoenix Veterans Day Parade honors the contributions of our United States Veterans. It helps build a patriotic Phoenix community spirit that recognizes veterans’ sacrifices for our country. The Parade couldn’t happen without the generous support of our community, the parade organizers, the Honoring Arizona’s Veterans board, and our parade participants.

The parade is managed and presented by Honoring America’s Veterans, a non-profit (501c3). The Parade Coordinator is Paula Pedene, who leads a tireless team of partners, vendors, and volunteers to create a memorable event each year.
