Armed Forces Day

Pontefract — 29 June 2024

Wakefield Armed Forces Day

10:00 am to 4:30 pm
Park Road
United Kingdom

Wakefield Armed Forces Day 2024 is a day of celebration and an opportunity for the people of Wakefield District to come together to say a big thank you to our serving Military Personnel and their Families, along with our Reservists, Veterans and Cadet Forces.

This hugely popular, free event will take place in the beautiful grounds of Pontefract Park which provides a perfect location for the Armed Forces to showcase their equipment and displays. Visitors can also enjoy a full arena programme, a Fly Past from The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, a Free Fall Parachute Display, Military Bands, Children’s Entertainment, Food Court, Historic Military Vehicles, and our well-attended Veterans’ Parade. There will also be a variety of military charities and veteran support organisations participating, who importantly provide much needed advice and support across our Armed Forces community.
This family friendly event really does offer something for everyone, whilst celebrating our remarkable Armed Forces personnel.

We do like a bit of value for money up here in Yorkshire and we are delighted to see that Wakefield Armed Forces Day is Free Entry and Free Parking; we hope to see you there!
