Anzac Day

Anzac Day on 25 April is an integral event in our city’s annual calendar. The national day of remembrance commemorates all New Zealanders killed in war and honours returned servicemen and women.

Palmerston North services take place at the Cenotaph in the Square.

The Dawn Service starts at 6am on 25 April, followed by a Civic Service at 9am. All are welcome to attend both services.

Registrations to lay wreaths and/or parade at next year's civic service will open in 2020.
