Event Details

sle of Wight Armed Forces Day returns for 2024 and once again it’s at the glorious beachside location of Eastern Gardens in Ryde. The date for your diary is Sunday the 30th of June. One day after the national Armed Forces Day.

Cllr Ian Dore – Armed Forces Champion and AFD Committee Chair

Prep started last summer, and we will be announcing the attendees over the next few months. Rest assured it’s going to be a stonker. There are thrilling air assets to inspire and excite, plus more on the ground to get interactive with. This includes engagement teams, live demos and of course live acts on stage. Throw into the mix a marching parade, the associated bands, military vehicles, kids activities, cadets and reservists; and you have another top quality Armed Forces Day event coming your way!

The Isle of Wight Armed Forces Day is a chance to show your support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community. From currently serving troops to service families, veterans, reservists, cadets and supporting registered charities. Showing support for the Armed Forces provides a much-valued morale boost for the troops and their families. The location itself provides the perfect opportunity to display land, sea and air assets, at one of the most idyllic parts of the Island.

“We of course will be commemorating the 80th anniversary of D-Day with the inclusion into the programme of two very special guests, and an incredible musical performance from that era. Many from our Island, made huge sacrifices and we must never forget, the vital roles played by them and their families. We are forever in their debt for what they gave for the future generations, not only of our Country but our Island. For now, block out the date for the official Isle of Wight Armed Forces Day. It’s going to be one of the must attend events of the summer.”
