Celebrating its 98th year, the annual City of Dearborn Memorial Day Parade will take place on May 27, 2024, along Michigan Ave. in West Dearborn. Hosted by the City of Dearborn and the Dearborn Allied War Veterans Council, this year’s parade will pay special tribute to Purple Heart recipients.
As one of the largest Memorial Day parades in the U.S. and the oldest in the state of Michigan, the event features over 80 regional officials, marching bands, and community groups. It concludes with a Remembrance Ceremony in honor of those who lost their lives while serving their country.
The parade will begin at approximately 9:30 a.m. with a military funeral procession. The Grand Marshal and parade groups will follow. A Remembrance Ceremony will occur at noon on the lawn of the Dearborn Historical Museum, 915 Brady St.
The public is welcome to attend.
The 2024 parade route will once again take place on Michigan Ave, beginning at Nowlin St. and ending at S Brady St., in west Dearborn due to continued MDOT construction.
