Veterans Day Parade & Salute To Service Ceremony honoring those who served

Join us for two special events on Veterans Day to honor those who served!

Thursday, November 11, is Veterans Day! On Veterans Day we honor and remember those who have served to ensure our freedoms and survival of the ‘American Way’. Here in Beaufort, we will be honoring those who served by celebrating with a parade that begins at 10:00 a.m. in front of the Beaufort National Cemetery.  Beaufort County invites the entire community to participate in the parade and say “thank you” to our veterans. Following the parade downtown, there will be another special ceremony in Port Royal at the Naval Heritage Park.  A small gesture of gratitude to the men and women for the sacrifices they have made for all of us. A single day, once a year just doesn’t seem to be enough.  Below are the details for each event. We look forward to seeing you all there!

Due to Covid concerns, the County parade committee will work closely with the city of Beaufort to monitor numbers to make sure the public and all parade participants remain safe. Beaufort County and the City of Beaufort will review each month to address the COVID situation. If the COVID situation continues to deteriorate and the parade is canceled, a cancellation announcement will follow immediately.

In case of inclement weather, the parade will be canceled.
