Armed Forces Day in Bremerton

In 2021, we are working our way back to the grand Armed Forces Day celebration Bremerton is known for across the country.  While a parade and festival remain just beyond our reach for this year, we’ve planned our year’s homage in a new way.

Join us on Saturday, May 15, 2021 at 10:00am as BKAT airs our Armed Forces Day Tribute Show.  Fittingly, the Tribute Show will begin at the same time our live parade would usually be getting underway.

Why is Armed Forces Day such a Big Deal in Bremerton? 

Bremerton is known nationwide for our annual celebrations of Armed Forces Day.  The Bremerton Chamber of Commerce has been celebrating Armed Forces Day in high style for over 50 years with Parades and Festivals to show our deep and enduring appreciation for those who have served, and continue to serve, in our nation's Armed Forces.  The military is a fundamental part of our community here in Bremerton and throughout Kitsap County.  Its culture runs deep in our heritage.
