ANZAC Day NYC 2022
ANZAC Day NYC 2022 will be commemorated with a Dawn Service at Vietnam Veterans Plaza, located at 55 Water Street, NYC.
ANZAC Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders “who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations” and “the contribution and suffering of all those who have served”.
Observed on 25 April each year, ANZAC Day was originally devised to honor the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who served in the Gallipoli Campaign during World War I.
History of ANZAC Day
The acronym ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, whose soldiers were known as Anzacs. ANZAC Day remains one of the most important national occasions in both Australia and New Zealand.
The 2020 and 2021 ANZAC Dawn services were canceled due to COVID. ANZAC Day 2022 in New York is therefore a special occasion where Australians and New Zealanders can gather in-person to commemorate this special day.
To mark this special occasion in 2022, the Australian Consulate-General, New York will host the Dawn Service, which is free and open to the public.
April 25 @ 5:30 am – 7:00 am

Replay of ANZAC Day 2021 Livestream
As the 2020 and 2021 Dawn Services were canceled due to COVID, we held a Livestream with participants from across the United States. A replay can be viewed below.
We wish to thank our corporate sponsors who, without their support, it would not be possible to bring you the ANZAC Day 2022 Livestream from New York.
