Since 1996. The City of Palm Springs proudly presents the Palm Springs Veterans Day Parade in downtown Palm Springs. The parade begins at Ramon Road and Palm Canyon Drive and heads northbound on Palm Canyon Drive to Alejo Road. Our event features a well regarded parade comprised of approximately 54 units, followed by a post parade concert and fireworks finale at the intersection of Amado Road and Palm Canyon Drive. This parade is one of the largest in Southern California and is supported by military units, marching bands, veterans’ organizations and much more. We are a designated Regional site for the observance of Veterans Day by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
