The 2022 Veterans Day Parade in the Chaffee Crossing Historic District returns on Saturday, November 12 with floats, motorcycles, tractors, classic cars, walkers, cyclists, runners, and hundreds of area veterans.

U.S. Senator John Boozman has declared this as Arkansas' largest Veterans Day celebration. Our festivities are centered around honoring veterans of all military services and all wars. It is always held on the second Saturday of November, starting at 12:00 noon sharp. The parade is preceded by a Veteran Honors Ceremony that includes medals presentations courtesy of U.S. Senator John Boozman's office.

Other activities before and during the parade include food trucks, veteran information booths, a kids' area, coat donations for veterans and their families, and a canned food drive.

Volunteers are always welcome. Email us to sign up:

If you cannot join us in person, please post photos and messages of appreciation for veterans in our “virtual parade” on this page.

THANK YOU, VETERANS, for your sacrifices. We appreciate your service and we will never forget your loyalty and patriotism!
