50th Annual Troy Flag Day Parade
The Troy Flag Parade has been touted as the nation's largest flag day celebration and attracts in excess of 50,000 spectators lining the 4th Street parade route in Troy, NY.
On Sunday, June 11, 2017, the parade will travel north from the Rensselaer County Jail in South Troy to Federal Street in Downtown Troy. The total length of the route is a 2-mile stretch along 4th Street, which will be blocked off from regular traffic on the day of the event.
This year, the parade will honor Joseph Killeen, a longtime member and chairman of the Troy Flag Day Committee, who passed away on June 23, 2016. A lifelong city resident, Killeen served in the U.S. Navy during World War II.
Please note: Federal Street in Downtown Troy will be blocked off for the day to mark the finish line and allow marching bands to park their buses. Marching bands should be dropped off at Rensselaer County Jail and their buses should park on Federal Street to pick them up at the end of the parade route.
