Salute to Veterans 2020

Greetings Veterans Parade participants and
event supporters!

The City of Auburn considers it a great honor to host a Veterans Parade & Observance each November, to pay tribute and celebrate our Veterans and those currently serving in the United States Armed Forces.

While it may not come as a big surprise to you, we are unable to host a  parade and other activities in the traditional way.

We are committed to honoring our Veterans and finding the safest way to execute this signature event in 2020 and have been re-tooling the event to create an unforgettable experience for this year.

Here’s a sneak peek at Auburn’s Salute to Veterans week this November:

2020 Schedule of Events

Veteran Vehicle Procession waving

Saturday, November 7

Veterans Vehicle Procession
11:00am – 1:00pm | Starting from Veterans Memorial Park
This event will give both parade participants and our loyal spectators an opportunity to participate. Participation in the procession is intended for our Veterans, active military, historic military vehicles and other Veteran-related groups. We encourage our community groups and parade spectators to find a spot along the procession route to welcome our Veterans along the way. In the coming weeks, we will be sharing the event route and the ways to register for this twist to our traditional parade. The vehicle procession route is 3 miles long (that's roughly 6 times the length of the traditional parade), allowing for social distancing for our spectators. It is imperative that the spectators follow social distancing and other COVID-safety requirements currently in place while viewing the procession.
