Edinburgh Armed Forces Day 2018

When
11:00 am to 3:00 pm
Location
Saint Andrew Square
Edinburgh

This year’s Edinburgh Armed Forces Day will take place in St Andrew Square Gardens on Saturday 30 June.

The event is a celebration of the history and proud record of the armed forces and their association and interaction with the local community. It allows the city of Edinburgh and its people to recognise and celebrate the outstanding contribution of those who serve, and have served, in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces, and the role they play within our society.

A parade of serving personnel and veterans will set off from Charlotte Square and make their way along George Street to St Andrew Square Gardens. On arrival there will be a short address from the Lord Provost and representatives from the Armed Forces and Veterans, before the parade dismisses to enjoy the entertainment and military and charity displays.

Come and join us for an afternoon of entertainment, as we show our thanks to our armed forces for the contributions they continue to make to our communities.
