2020 Veterans Day Celebrations

Looking for a way to safely celebrate the incredible sacrifces that our Veterans have made for our nation? From a memorial motorcade to special events for Veterans and first responders themselves, Fort Worth has multiple opportunities to express your gratitude.

Tarrant County Veteran’s Memorial Motorcade

Downtown Fort Worth — Wednesday, November 11, 10am

COVID-19 protocols have the 101st  Veterans Day observance in Fort Worth to
now be dubbed “drive-by patriotism.”

New Route: Down North Forest Park Blvd. from Purcey St. to just south of
Rotary Plaza where the divided roadway ends. Then, back up Forest Park to
Panther Island.

Public Viewing: Along the Clear Fork of the Trinity River on the west side
of downtown Fort Worth. Motorcade begins about 11 a.m.
