The Corps of Cadets conducts a dress parade many Friday afternoons, on some Saturday mornings, and for special occasions when VMI is in session.

The parade showcases the professionalism of the cadets as well as the pageantry of this traditional military event.

During the 45-minute parade, the cadet regiment conducts rifle drill according to U.S. Army standards, reports to the reviewing officer, receives orders, and marches in review past the audience and the reviewing officer.
