May 27 – Farmington Memorial Day Parade

Farmington, MI- The Farmington Memorial Day Parade has been a Farmington Area tradition since 1970, and continues to celebrate and honor our heroes almost a half-century later.

The parade begins at 10:00 am on Memorial Day, near the intersection of Grand River Avenue and Orchard Lake Road. Parade participants stage on Mooney Road (just west of Orchard Lake Road), and travel one mile west on Grand River into downtown Farmington.. The parade ends at Oakland Avenue, where a brief ceremony takes place at the Farmington War Memorial Monument in Memorial Park. The ceremony features local Honor and Color Guards, and high ranking officials from various branches of our military service.

The Farmington Memorial Day Parade Committee invites the community to join us in honoring our veterans, fallen heroes, active service men and women, and parade participants along Grand River Avenue, as well as the ceremony in Memorial Park. Afterwards, the community is invited to join marchers at the American Legion Hall for a luncheon sponsored by Weingartz. We look forward to seeing you in Farmington for this great family event.

The Farmington Memorial Day Parade is co-sponsored by Groves-Walker American Legion Post 346 and the Xemplar Club of Farmington & Farmington Hills. The Parade Committee welcomes volunteers who would like to be part of the team that organizes and manages the event. If that sounds like you, please drop us a line. Those interested in volunteering should also sign up for our ListServ to get emails about upcoming meetings. We also encourage our local non-profit and civic organizations to march with us on Memorial Day. Groups interested in marching should register here.
