Gloucester Day Parade

The Gloucester Day celebrations will take place in the Historic City of Gloucester, on Saturday 6th September 2014. This event is designed to install and promote pride in our historic city by creating interest in its rich heritage and colourful past.


The major catalyst is to reinstate the original Gloucester day celebration which was the lifting of the siege of Gloucester 1643. This occasion was celebrated annually for centuries, hence Gloucester becoming known as The City saved by God.


Admission to this event is free.
