The Wellesley Celebrations Committee announces the theme of this year’s 2021 Parade. The town of Wellesley will celebrate the 80th Anniversary of the founding of the USO (United Service Organizations), one of the most well-known and effective service organizations in America. Since 1941, the USO has been the nation’s leading organization to serve the men and women in the U.S. military, and their families, throughout their time in uniform, keeping them connected to family, home and country throughout their service to the nation.

It’s  happening!

The 53rd Annual Veterans Parade will be held on Sunday, Oct. 3rd starting at 1 p.m. to honor all veterans who have served our country and recognize all the many organizations and people who serve our community.

The 2021 Wellesley’s Wonderful Weekend celebrations will be held the weekend of October 2nd and 3rd, with some events scheduled to be held on Friday, the 1st.  

Safety is our primary concern.   We will follow Covid Guidelines under the leadership of the Wellesley Public Health Department and the Select Board.  Procedures will be well established at the time of the parade especially given that the Boston Marathon will be held one week following our gathering.   Some costs have increased to implement the weekend festivities to ensure public health safety.
