Veterans of all eras

You deserve a parade.  

Veterans from WWII, Korea, Vietnam and more recent conflicts have been participating for several years, some for decades.  We invite and welcome veterans from all eras to take their rightful place among us in the Nisei Week Parade.  We would be proud to walk or ride with you.  You served your country with honor. Please join your fellow veterans as our community shows its appreciation.  

The parade is Sunday, August 11th at 4:00pm.  Formation for the parade begins approximately 2:30pm at the corner of Third Street and Central Avenue. 


Come early to ensure parking and enjoy the exhibits and festivities of Nisei Week.  Also join fellow veterans at the JAKWV hospitality room at the JACCC which is only a block from the formation site.  The JACCC is also the home of the Japanese American National War Memorial Court, the only place in the country which honors, by name, the over 1200 Americans of Japanese Ancestry who gave their lives in defense of the U.S.A.
