Mormon Battalion 177th Anniversary Commemoration Parade

January 27 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Free

The Old Town San Diego community is excited to announce the annual Mormon Battalion Parade and Community Event, taking place on Saturday, January 27, 2024 in Old Town San Diego State Historic Park.

This meaningful event commemorates the Mormon Battalion, a group of approximately 500 men who served in the United States Army during the Mexican-American War in the mid-1800s. The Battalion’s participation in the war played a significant role in the expansion of the western United States.

The parade will feature a historic reenactment of the battalion’s arrival in San Diego and other entertainment, and will culminate in a community event with a Dutch oven cook-off, games, and activities for all ages. The event is free and open to the public.

“We are thrilled to host this annual event honoring the Mormon Battalion,” said Brent Top, the event’s coordinator and the President of the Mormon Battalion Historic Site. “It is a great opportunity for our community to come together and celebrate the history and contributions of these brave soldiers.”

The Mormon Battalion Parade and Community Event is a can’t-miss event for San Diego residents and visitors. We hope to see you there!
