Memorial Day FlagsMassachusetts proudly supports and honors military members who have died fighting for our country. Memorial Day — May 29, 2017 — offers residents an opportunity to remember fallen heroes. The Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism (MOTT) and the Department of Veterans’ Services (DVS) share information on Memorial Day events from Boston to the Berkshires.

Parades in Massachusetts

There are more than 40 Memorial Day parades scheduled in cities and towns across the state. Check with your municipality or the parade sponsor in your area for start times and routes.

Ceremonies at Veterans’ Cemeteries

Many state veterans’ cemeteries and other resting places for military members in Massachusetts host annual Memorial Day ceremonies.

If you’d like to pay your respects to those who have served in your community, you can find burial site information for veterans using the VA’s nationwide gravesite locator.

Free Events for Veterans and Service Members

If you serve our country or want to do something special with a veteran or active duty military member, consider a free event during Memorial Day weekend.
