The Austin Veterans Day Parade Foundation welcomes you to this year's parade, ceremonies, and other activities. This is an all-volunteer event operating for over 18 years. Veterans' Day is an annual American holiday honoring military veterans. Both a federal holiday and a state holiday in all states, it is usually observed on November 11. However, if it occurs on a Sunday then the following Monday is designated for holiday leave, and if it occurs Saturday then either Saturday or Friday may be so designated. The 2020 parade is planned for Wednesday, November 11. Watch this space for changes or alternatives to the parade this year. It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on November 11, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I.
Our theme this year is Service. Veterans service is never ending and we want to highlight some of the great services provided by for and to Travis County veterans, especially by other veterans.
