The main event is traditionally scheduled to take place at the Cathedral Square in Vilnius at noon – a line-up of Lithuanian and Allied troops, followed by a parade along the central Gedimino Avenue to the Independence Square.

The line-up will include troops of Lithuania's Armed Forces and its units, NATO Allies, and the joint Lithuanian, Polish and Ukrainian brigade.

US fighter-jets F-15 serving in the NATO air-policing mission in the Baltic states should perform a fly-by above the Lithuanian capital for the occasion.

The Lithuanian Armed Forces Day should also be celebrated in other cities of the country.
