The Whatcom Memorial Day Parade Committee has been monitoring the COVID-19 situation very carefully and responsibly with the rest of the nation. Planning, executing, and the consideration of canceling a large community event supported by so many volunteers, agencies, municipal and county resources, sponsors, donors, patrons, local businesses, and participants working throughout the entire year is a serious decision.
We are in serious times. The Whatcom Memorial Day Parade Committee IS CANCELLING this year’s Parade for the sake of public health and public health resources in our area and after the guidance of our national, state and local public health officials.
This will not stop the Parade Committee from continuing its work. There is much heavy lifting to do in the days ahead. We will be doing this with our communities and county agencies, sponsors, and key donors who are affected largely by our decision.
We are all very proud of the hard work done to this point and ensure you that the Whatcom Memorial Day Parade will be back!!!
Please look forward to further updates on our website or "Like Us" on Facebook. This will provide you with the most up-to-date and accurate information directly from the Parade Committee.
Please note, we are not prepared, at this very time, to offer a rescheduled date because of the complexity of such an event.
Thank you for your understanding as we continue to put the health and safety of our communities first.
The Whatcom Memorial Day Parade Committee wishes you and your families the best during these challenging times.
