Wichita’s annual Veteran’s Day parade is scheduled for November 5, 2022. It’s one of the events in Wichita our family hardly ever misses. Veterans day is on November 11th so make sure not to miss the parade that’s on the 5th.
We’re also gathering information about numerous Veterans Day freebies and discounts in the Wichita area.
The theme for this year’s parade is “Honoring Women Veterans”. The parade will begin at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, November 5th, in downtown Wichita. The parade route begins at Main & Central and goes south on Main to Douglas. New this year the route will be ending at WaterWalk instead of Riverfront Stadium.

Following the parade there will be a celebration and the chance to meet the parade participants; view vehicles and other displays; listen to patriotic music and hear comments from our local and state elected officials. There will also food concessions available for a pleasant lunch. We are inviting the car clubs in the area to be in the parade and to do a “Show and Shine” car show in the area next to Riverfront Stadium following the parade. For car club entries please indicate accordingly on the Google Form so we can allocate sufficient parking.

Where does one park to see the parade?
There is some parking under Kellogg that is usually accessible on parade day, or find some spots along the streets downtown. It’s kind of hit or miss along the streets, which is why I recommend getting there early!
At some point, Main street will be closed from (I think) Central to Waterman, so plan your route around that.

I believe the Veterans Day ceremony at Century II is Wednesday, November 8, not Thursday.
Oh my goodness. I better double-check that. Thank you, Laura!
You are right, Laura. November 8 is a Wednesday, not Thursday! Thanks again. I’ve made that correction.
