Annual Veterans Day Ceremony

Join Us for the Annual Veterans Day Ceremony

For several generations, McLean County has commemorated Veterans Day on the Courthouse Square (now known as the Museum Square) in the heart of historic downtown Bloomington. 

This year’s ceremony, Tuesday, November 11, will commence at 11 minutes before 11:00 a.m., with the color guard firing one round each minute until 11:00 a.m. Veterans Day began as Armistice Day to mark the cessation of hostilities during World War I on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918.

As always, the local ceremony will be held on east steps of the Museum.
