    Event History

    After years of silence, the Armed Forces Weekend Committee (AFWC) is bringing back the Connersville Armed Forces Parade - - our tribute to the strength and spirit of this country. We are giving a "Welcome Home" to the Vietnam Veterans that is way overdue. We are celebrating our heritage, our freedom and the sacrifices of so many.  This event is a joint celebration with the Fayette County Bicentennial Committee during their weekend long Festival (May 16-19) in celebration of Fayette County's 200th Birthday!  Go to their Facebook page at: Fayette County Bicentennial - Indiana, for up to date information and schedule of the weekend's events.


    Event Highlights

    Enjoy the parade, food, music and displays in Roberts Park and the thrill of Geocashing.
