Don’t delay in getting your Parade Participation and/or Veterans Outreach Table applications in for the 3rd Annual Philadelphia Veterans Parade being held on November 5, 2017. The deadline for applications is September 30, 2017
This year, as last, we will have a Veterans Festival after the Veterans Parade. Stay tuned for more information about the time and details of the Festival!
Last year the Parade and Festival was a great success. More than 150 groups participated involving over 3000 participants and 34 Veteran Service Organizations participated in the Festival held between 4th and 5th Street on Market.
Nearly 150,000 viewers watched the parade on television, despite competition from the Eagles-Giants football game. With coverage on 40 media outlets, the parade had about 2 million views. Our media partner, Channel 6 ABC, and Fox News had nearly 250,000 viewers the day of the parade alone.
Estimates were that about 8,00-10,000 viewed the parade in person and attended the festival afterwards. Some of the activity can be viewed on this web site in the impressive array of photos and videos, including the complete nearly three-hour parade.
In short, the parade, now in its third year, continues to grow and improve and we hope you will join us this year.
