Whatcom Memorial Day Parade

The Whatcom Memorial Day Parade will take place on May 27, 2023 from noon to 3 p.m. The parade starts at the intersection of Alabama and Cornwall streets.

This year’s parade will be the 101st iteration in the past 104 years, interrupted only by the Great Depression and the COVID pandemic.

The parade’s purpose is to “Celebrate our Communities and Honor our Heroes.” This is a non-political family event where we proudly showcase our entire Whatcom County Communities, including commercial entries, schools, fire/law enforcement and all branches of the armed services.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
