Thank You!

The City of Woodstock is grateful for the efforts of those who have assisted in organizing the Remembrance Day ceremony, including the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #55, The Oxford County Naval Veterans Association, City of Woodstock staff, local MP, MPP, emergency services and local school boards.

Canadian Harvard Aircraft Fly-over

The City of Woodstock extends gratitude to the Canadian Harvard Association and the Miller Family for including our community in their efforts. The Miller Family has generously sponsored the flyover for many years in memory of their Father, Jim Miller.


Remembrance Day Banners

In 2023, the City of Woodstock honoured more than 60 local veterans with a series of commemorative banners. The banners, which will be installed yearly in October, are placed on light poles throughout downtown and feature men and women from Woodstock who served in war and have now passed.

If you would like to be notified of any future opportunities to honour a local veteran, please email events@cityofwoodstock.ca

Photo Gallery: Remembrance Day Banners will appear here on the public site.
