The City of Carmel, Mayor Jim Brainard and members of local veterans organizations, work together to host an annual Veterans Day Ceremony, a community event in honor of our veterans. The ceremony pays tribute and thanks those who served our country in order for us to enjoy the freedoms that we have today. 

All area students are involved in this event through a poster and essay contest. The elementary grades K-5 participate though the poster contest and the middle and high school students write essays to enter into the contest. One student is selected from each grade level to attend the ceremony and present their poster or essay during the event.

Traditionally, the Carmel Veterans Day ceremony is held at noon the business day before Veterans Day, which allows our local veterans to participate in other regional ceremonies held on Veterans Day. 

This event is free and open to the public. No ticketing is required.
