About The Parade

The Dacula Memorial Day Parade will once again step off on Monday, May 27, 2024 at 10:00 a.m. The parade takes place rain or shine.  There is no rain date.

Founded by Marvin Atherton, the Dacula Memorial Day parade has been a proud tradition in Dacula since 1994. The parade has grown over the years with about 100 units participating in the parade each year! Families begin to line the street hours before the parade begins. There are 10,000 plus spectators lining the parade route when the parade steps off at 10:00 a.m.

The Dacula Memorial Day parade is one of the most high profile events in the metro Atlanta area on Memorial Day. It is important that we take this opportunity to honor the sacrifice made by thousands of Americans who died guarding our precious liberties and way of life. As founder of the Dacula Memorial Day parade, it is my goal to see that today's youth understand the significance of Memorial Day. For this reason, every participating parade unit is to focus on honoring our Fallen Heroes and display Patriotism.

The parade features our Fallen Heores, Veterans, Veterans organizations, active and reserve service men and women, active and restored military vehicles, marching bands, Scouts, churches, community groups, local businesses, horses, antique and classic cars, tractors and much more!

We hope you will plan to join us while we honor those who gave their lives for our freedom!
