The Nuneaton Remembrance Day Parade and Service is held on the Sunday nearest to the 11th November (Armistice Day) each year.  It is held in Riversley Park and commences with a parade from the town centre  to the park.  It is one of the largest Remembrance Parades in Warwickshire, and with the spectators there are usually 5000+ people in the park.

At the end of the service the parade marches back to the town centre and the Civic Party takes the salute on the steps of the Town Hall.
