Join us for the city of Appleton's 72nd Appleton Flag Day Parade on Saturday, June 10, 2023, beginning at 2:00 p.m. Please look for our North Shore Bank float and give us a wave and say hello when we pass by! 

The annual event is always held on the second Saturday in June. Fox Cities citizens have honored “Old Glory” since 1950, making the Appleton Flag Day Parade the nation’s oldest. This celebration annually attracts hundreds of participants and more than 50,000 spectators to Appleton. 

The Parade Grand Marshal is always the United States Flag. Each year, the Appleton Flag Day Parade also pays tribute to a branch of the military. The Parade begins at 2:00 PM at the intersection of Wisconsin Avenue and N. Oneida Street. The route travels west down W. Wisconsin Avenue to N. State Street, south on N. State Street to W. College Avenue. At W. College Avenue the parade travels east and ends at Drew Street. The Appleton Flag Day Parade has been broadcast on WFRV TV5 since 1989.

The event is organized by the Appleton Parade Committee, a group of dedicated community volunteers. Follow the Appleton Flag Day Parade on Facebook for news and updates on this year’s event. You an also find details here:
