Annual Motorcade

The Medal of Honor Host City kicks off each years event with a motorcade encompassing multiple police and emergency vehicles plus in excess of 500 motorcycles.

On the day of the arrival, the Medal of Honor recipients and their guest are taken from DFW airport to Gainesville Texas non-stop. A tradition that each community we pass through along the route contribute to expressing our gratitude for the sacrifice and service to our nation.

Watch this page for future updates with route and how to be a part of the motorcade as the event gets closer.

It is with deep regret that we are canceling/postponing this years Medal of Honor Host City Program event. Due to the coronavirus, our city has limited group gatherings to 50 or less people for the next 8 weeks. Our guest list alone exceeds that in every portion of our event, therefore we are going to follow this guidance and cancel the event scheduled for April 15-19,2020.
We will be meeting soon to make a decision on how to proceed forward. Please stay tuned for updates. Thank you for your support and patronage.
