The Town hosts and sponsors many great holiday events and activities. Read more below:

Memorial Day

The Town remembers those heroes who gave the ultimate sacrifice. The Town of Purcellville held a virtual Memorial Day Ceremony that was published on the Town of Purcellville Facebook page on Monday, May 25. The virtual ceremony ensures compliance with the Governor’s Executive Order 62 which restricts gatherings of 10 or more people, while still offering residents the opportunity to join together to honor members of the military who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.  The ceremony was two separate Facebook posts. The first was a Facebook Live event at 11:45 a.m. with Mayor Kwasi Fraser giving his opening remarks. At 11:50 a.m., a video of the recorded ceremony was published on the Town’s Facebook page. 

July 4th

The Town supports the annual Fourth of July hometown parade sponsored by the Purcellville Volunteer Fire Department. The parade starts at 12:30 p.m. and many community organizations enter floats at this patriotic event. 

9/11 Remembrance Day

The Town is honored to have a steel I-beam from the World Trade Center as part of its 9/11 Memorial on the Fireman's Field property. Each year on September 11th, the Town remembers the events of the day with a ceremony, supported by community members and boy scout troops.
