Thanks to the Malvern Borough Police, Malvern Historical Commission, the Paoli Battlefield Preservation Fund, community Fire and Police members, the several bands and groups we held the 2021 Parade.  It may have been a little late and a bit smaller, but the enthusiasm and support from the community was fantastic.  Thank you, Malvern!

Now, we prepare for hopefully a more normal parade next June. 

On Sunday, June 5, 2022 at 1:30 PM, The Upper Main Line Memorial Association will sponsor the 153rd Annual Memorial Parade in the Borough of Malvern, Chester County, Pennsylvania.

Recognized as among the oldest Memorial Commemoration in America, the Parade in 2022 will continue the tradition of honoring the men and women who have served our country and especially those who gave their lives in defense of our freedom.

The Parade route will again follow King Street from the Malvern Fire Station west to Warren Avenue, south to Monument Avenue then west to the Memorial Park.

After the Parade on Sunday, the 206th Memorial Ceremony will take a moment to remember and pay tribute to those who have defended our freedom.

All of the events take place in Memorial Park, on Monument Ave. in Malvern. In the unlikely event of rain, there is no rain date for the parade or any of the activities. 

The Paoli-Berwyn-Malvern Chapter of the Lions Club will be selling refreshments in the park and will be collecting used eye glasses and hearing aids. Please drop off your unused glasses at the Lion’s Club stand. For more information visit the Lions Club website.
