Parade Schedule

The tradition of parading troops can be traced back to the time of Alexander the Great. Drill procedures and movements on the parade field are identical to the tactical maneuvers employed on the battlefield in the past.

U.S. military reviews and parades began at Valley Forge. At that time, brigades of soldiers were formed in order of battle. Modern day ceremonies are conducted to inspect troops, render honors, preserve tradition, and foster espirit de corps. At various times throughout the year The Citadel's parades are used to present awards and recognize students, faculty, staff and other notable people.

Citadel parades are free to attend and open to the public.

*Please note that parade times are subject to change. Check back for updates.Citadel parade schedule, 2014-15

Summerall Guards

Citadel parades are held on Summerall Field most Fridays during the school year and are open to the public. Check the schedule for specific dates and starting times. Since parking on campus can be a problem, you should plan to arrive 15 to 30 minutes before the start of the parade. Cadets will welcome you to campus and direct you to visitor parking.

Check out directions & maps and visitor information. We hope to see you soon!
