Memorial Day Ceremony & Parade

Honor guard walking in the Memorial Day Parade in Shaker Heights, Ohio

Mark your calendars for the Shaker Heights Memorial Day celebrations on Monday, May 27. The annual ceremony and parade brings together a grateful community to memorialize the nation's war dead, and to honor local heroes serving in all branches of the military. We hope to see you there. 


Join the Mayor and members of City Council at 9 am for the annual wreath laying ceremony at the War Memorial in front of City Hall (3400 Lee Rd.). This year's speaker is Nancy Lyon-Stadler and our officiant is the Rev. Mack Rice, Jr., Associate Pastor, East View UCC.

Immediately following the ceremony, the parade will progress down Van Aken Blvd. in the westbound lane. Please note that this year, the parade will end in the Van Aken District (not at Thornton Park as in year's prior).

Sign Up for the Parade

There's still time to register to be part of the annual Memorial Day Parade. Fill out our online form to register to participate in the parade (deadline to register is April 29). Please contact Jeff Jacko, or 216-491-2595 with questions.
