Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance invites all veterans, veterans organizations, clubs, civic organizations, companies, and individuals to participate in the parade. All parade entries should display a patriotic theme and honor veterans in a special way.

The entry fee is $25.00 for commercial entries. All veterans, veterans groups, non-profits and government entities are exempt from this fee.

Sponsor the Veterans Day Parade

Each November, our community lines Main Street to honor the veterans who have served our nation. We recognize our nation’s heroes at the annual Veterans Parade and welcome spectators from Harrisonburg, Rockingham County, and other nearby communities. Sponsors are able to participate in the parade and show their support during one of our most meaningful events of the year.
