Event Date
Veterans Day Ceremony

The 2023 Veterans Day Ceremony will take place on the Entergy Plaza in front of the Two Mississippi Museums. The program will include a performance by the 41st Army Band, a moment of silence, and recognition of the veterans in attendance and of fallen heroes by Major General Janson D. Boyles—the Adjutant General of the Mississippi National Guard. A memorial volley and wreath laying will follow.

The museums are offering free admission to those currently serving in the military, veterans, and family members of a veteran on Thursday, November 9; Friday, November, 10; and Saturday, November 11. Free parking is available at the Two Mississippi Museums visitor parking garage, located behind the museums on Jefferson Street. For more information, contact 601-576-6850 or email
