Armed Forces Day Parade

Saturday 24 June 2017
Parade: 11am, Union Street

Armed Forces Day Parade
Watch the impressive parade of serving military men and women, veteran associations, cadet and youth organisations accompanied by local pipe bands march down Union Street, finishing at the Castlegate.

The parade is a celebration of the history and proud record of the armed forces and allows the people of Aberdeen to show their respect for the role they play within our society.

If you are connected to the armed forces (serving personnel, veteran, cadet, TA or a war widow) and would like to become involved in our armed forces day please contact us.
