Veterans Day Ceremony

This one-hour ceremony at the Santa Barbara Cemetery with the Santa Barbara Choral Society is a poignant tribute to all veterans. This event is co-hosted with VFW Post 1649.



Veterans Day Parade

The Santa Barbara Veterans Day Parade is a star spangled salute to all veterans complete with WWII vehicles and re-enactors, heroes from all branches of the military, a Huey helicopter, and historic military aircraft flyovers! Come cheer on our heroes past and present as the parade makes its way down State Street to Cabrillo Blvd., finishing at the Carriage Museum for the Salute to Vets celebration.

Parachute Landing

Follow the parade down State Street to watch in awe as skydiving members of the Patriot Parachute Team perform in the sky above the waterfront, landing on Cabrillo Blvd. Join us at the Carriage Museum to kick off the 5th Annual Salute to Vets.
