|Greater Dallas Veterans Day Parade
Plans For 2023
In 2023 the Veterans Day parade will be in downtown Dallas. It will be on THURSDAY, November 9th, with massing of the colors and the 11th hour (11:00 AM) ceremony in front of City Hall. The parade will commence following the official ceremony (approximately 1 hour). The route will start at Reunion Arena, will proceed north on Houston Street, east on Main Street, south on Ervay Street, west on Young Street, south on Akard Street and pass in review in front of City Hall.
The parade route is similar to prior years. After passing in review, parade units will turn south on Ervay and disperse south of City Hall.
Military vehicles and equipment, veterans organizations, civic and corporate displays will be available for viewing at 9:30 AM in front of City Hall and will be dismantled after the parade.
