Veterans Day Parade

Veterans Day

Thursday, November 11, 2021 


On Thursday, November 11, Main Street in downtown Harrisonburg will be lined with American flags, and Court Square will be decorated in red, white, and blue as a gesture of gratitude for those, past and present, who have made our nation’s freedom possible. Across the City, chimes and church bells will ring to mark the 11 a.m. hour, in the hopes that community members will hear the bells and take a moment to remember the courage, stories, and sacrifice of the veterans in their lives.

An in-person Veterans Parade will not be held this year, but we hope that this time next year we will be able to once again gather with friends and neighbors to celebrate and honor our veterans.

Follow Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance on Facebook as we highlight the stories of veterans in our community on Veterans Day. See information below for discounts and promotions being offered to veterans and active members of the military from businesses in Downtown Harrisonburg.
