Creating an awe-inspiring panorama, 100 United States flags will fly in a solemn formation during November of 2022. This stirring display of  flags will bring the community together in a patriotic tribute to honor our heroes.  Each U.S. flag represents an individual and tells a story. Flags may be sponsored to honor individuals currently serving in our military, veterans, first responders, fallen servicemen & women, essential workers, heroes in our lives, and hometown heroes. This unique event is the perfect opportunity for all of us to remember and honor our many heroes.

The Stars & Stripes reminds us of who we are as a people. Americans meet the challenges of history and overcome hardships becoming stronger. That is just who we are. The United States flag represents our solidarity in creating a brighter tomorrow and uniting us all.

This moving display is a gift to the community made possible through donations, sponsorships and the efforts of many dedicated volunteers. You can show your support and gratitude by sponsoring a flag or making a donation.

This is an experience hard to describe, but never to be forgotten. We invite all to visit the Canandaigua Field of Honor® patriotic display and walk with us among the posted flags.

The display is open to all without charge. Don’t miss it!

Thank You
