River Forest Park District, Village of River Forest, and Kiwanis Club of River Forest-Oak Park are proud to present the 96th annual River Forest Memorial Day Parade, Ceremony and Community Picnic on Monday, May 30. The parade kicks off at 9:30 AM beginning at Augusta and Ashland, traveling south on Ashland to Lake Street, then west to Keystone Park. The parade will end at Keystone Park with a ceremony and FREE hotdog lunch. Over 100 entries participate annually in the Parade, with thousands of residents lining the route, making this day one of the highlights of the year in the Village of River Forest.
The mission of our parade is "to recognize and honor the men and women of the Armed Forces of the United States of America and especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice".
Any individual or business interested in entering a float or walking in the parade, must register by Monday, May 23, 2022.
Add a resident to the honor roll
If you know of any River Forest residents who are on active duty or are a veteran of our military, we would like to honor them in future Memorial Day ceremonies by including them in our honor roll.
