Village of Roscoe - 2024 Memorial Day Parade Route

Roscoe, IL – May 15, 2024 – The Roscoe VFW Post 2955 will be holding its annual Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 27, 2024 at 10 a.m., commemorating the brave men and women who have served and sacrificed for our country.

The parade will start on Main Street, just north of the Village Hall entrance at the bridge. From there, it will proceed north along Main Street to Harrison Street, and then head east into the Roscoe Cemetery at 5949 Harrison Street. At the cemetery, the VFW will host a solemn memorial ceremony to honor Roscoe’s fallen heroes.

For those not attending the memorial ceremony, the parade route will offer an alternative end, continuing to 6th Street and dispersing at Broad Street.

Parade participants are encouraged to begin lining up on Main Street, just north of Presley Place, in front of the Roscoe Police Department, starting at 9:30 a.m. All community members, families, and visitors are invited to join in this tribute to our nation’s veterans.

“We invite everyone to come out and show their support for our veterans and fallen heroes,” said Village President Carol Gustafson. “This parade has been a long-time tradition in Roscoe, and it is a meaningful way for our community to come together and honor those who have given so much for our freedom.”
