Albany Veterans Day Parade Route
The streets of Albany begin to fill up several hours prior to the start of the parade. Businesses open early, groups offer hot coffee and hot chocolate along the parade route all waiting for the unmistakable sound of the over 400 + motorcycles beginning their steady pace to start off the parade. Followed by well over 200 separate parade entries.
Join with us as we Honor All Veterans
One Generation Honoring Another
The streets of Albany are lined with thousands of cheering spectators who come together each year, rain or shine to simply offer their appreciation to the men and women who have served our country.
A simply, yet profound tradition begun so long ago. To bring our veterans together and honor them in the largest way possible with standing ovations as they pass by. Join with us, this Veterans Day as we honor all generations of veterans.
What would a parade be without bands, youth groups, horses and businesses all marching or riding in the parade supporting our veterans and offering their own personal and heartfelt salutes while thanking our veterans for their service !
Prior to the parade, please join us for the annual Veterans Day Memorial Service,
