Reedsport Memorial Parade

Welcome to the Reedsport Memorial Parade

The Reedsport Memorial Parade is held on Memorial Day weekend every year.

The purpose of Reedsport’s Memorial Weekend Parade is to honor the fallen of all the wars and all our veterans for their service to their country. We ask that all who observe and participate keep the sprit of honoring our fallen in mind during our event.

The theme of the 2021 parade was “A Salute in Remembrance.” We will be showcasing displays at local businesses and having more community involvement events leading up to this years parade.

The parade is designed to appeal to veterans and families throughout the area. All parade entrants are required to recognize and observe the parade’s purpose and theme. It is also our hope that the parade participants will enjoy showing their patriotism and their gratitude to the fallen soldiers and the Veterans of the United States Military.

War Memorial Service

A small ceremony will be held at the Hahn War Memorial at the end of the parade.
