Troops on Kim Il Sung Square during the 2013 Victory Day parade
This is a list of military parades held in Pyongyang, the capital of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) since 1948. All military parades consist of troops from the Korean People's Army and the paramilitary Worker-Peasant Red Guards. All military parades of a national nature are held on Pyongyang's Kim Il-sung Square with the General Secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, President of the State Affairs Commission and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of North Korea in attendance. These parades are broadcast live on Korean Central Television.
Contrary to popular belief, military parades are for the most part, held on quintennial or decennial anniversaries (every 5 or 10 years) and/or jubilee years (ex: 25th anniversary, 40th anniversary, 50th anniversary, 60th anniversary, 70th anniversary).
Many parade participants are awarded with special decorative medals as well as certain arrangements at their barracks.
Military Foundation Day
Parades held in honor of Military Foundation Day:
The first parade of Korean People's Army took place on Military Foundation Day in 1948. It took place at Pyongyang Station in the presence of Soviet generals from the 25th Army and Soviet Civil Administration. It included the participation of about 20,000 North Korean soldiers who stood at attention during the first part of the parade in which Premier Kim Il Sung presided as commander in chief.
It celebrated the KPRA's ruby jubilee. Unlike the first parade, this parade included more diverse contingents of troops, particularly motorized infantry. According to a later defector from the Pyongyang Defense Command, a female officer collapsed after her appendix burst following the parade, to which she was "praised" by her superiors for having concealed it. Head of the Royal Government of the National Union of Kampuchea Prince Norodom Sihanouk, Marshal of the Soviet Union Kirill Moskalenko and commander of the Shenyang Military Region Chen Xilian were among the foreign dignitaries at the parade.
In 1992, the KPRA's diamond jubilee parade was held. It saw the participation of over 20,000 active troops and 1,200 pieces of weaponry, as well veterans of all wars in which the DPRK was a participant. During the parade, KPA Supreme Commander Kim Jong-il made his first public speech during a military parade for the KPA's 60th anniversary and said: "Glory to the officers and soldiers of the heroic Korean People's Army!", which was followed by a loud applause by the crowd on the square. It was the last parade to include the Soviet-style goose step. Newly promoted Marshal O Jin-u made the keynote address and the parade was commanded by also newly promoted Vice Marshal Kim Kwang-jin.
The parade celebrated the 75th anniversary of the KPRA. General Kim Kyok-sik, the then defence chief of the DPRK, gave the keynote address. The broadcast was delayed by three hours, with speculation by experts that this was due to Kim Jong Il's absence.
The parade celebrated the 81st anniversary of the KPRA. It was one of the only times a parade was held on a non-jubilee year; the parade that was planned for the previous year was cancelled due to the preparations for the parade on the 100th anniversary of Kim Il Sung that was held ten days prior to the planned parade. It was the first to be held on the forecourt of the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun. Military hardware was not displayed during the parade. Speeches were delivered by commanders of the different branches of the KPA, during which they spoke of the military readiness of their branches.
In 2018, the platinum jubilee anniversary of the founding of the KPA in its current form took place on 8 February that year. It was speculated that this parade, which was the first since the holiday was changed back to 8 February, was held deliberately to coincide with the 2018 Winter Olympics opening ceremony in Pyeongchang County, South Korea, during which North Korean and South Korean athletes marched together in the parade of nations. The parade included 13,000 soldiers of the KPA.
The 90th anniversary of the Korean People's Revolutionary Army [ko] was marked with a nighttime military parade on April 25. It marked a memorable first appearance for agents and employees of the Ministry of State Security and the women's traffic police officers of the Korean People's Internal Security Forces.
For the first time, corps and force battalions had their division and regimental/wing colours carried on parade.
The columns of the troops are as follows:
Honor Guards, Historical Troops and Corps-level Units
Soldiers in Korean People's Revolutionary Army [ko] uniform
Soldiers in Fatherland Liberation War period uniform consisting the Army, Navy and Air Force
Guard Office of the Party Central Committee
Guard Department of the State Affairs Commission
Guard Department of the Party Central Committee
Supreme Guard Command

SEOUL, Feb. 8 (Yonhap) -- North Korea held a military parade in Pyongyang Wednesday to mark the 75th founding anniversary of its armed forces, an informed source said, in what was seen as a highly choreographed event to flaunt its military might and foster national unity.
It took place at Kim Il Sung Square following a pre-parade event that started at 8:30 p.m., the source said, as the country celebrated the anniversary of the Korean People's Army.
It was not immediately known whether North Korean leader Kim Jong-un attended the parade. The secretive regime has often used such an event to showcase its major new weapons.
In the run-up to the parade, media outlets cited analyses of commercial satellite imagery indicating the reclusive state mobilized troops, vehicles and other pieces of military equipment in apparent rehearsals.
The North was expected to use fireworks and other means to liven up the nighttime celebrations for people who have been struggling with long-running economic hardships and pandemic-induced restrictions.
The parade came as the recalcitrant regime has been doubling down on its weapons development programs, lambasting what it calls a U.S. "hostile" policy and stressing its principle of "nuke for nuke and an all-out confrontation for an all-out confrontation."
Pyongyang has also hardened its rhetoric against Seoul, naming the southern neighbor an "undoubted" enemy and calling for an exponential increase in its nuclear arsenal.
Since Kim took power following his father's death in late 2011, his regime has staged 13 miliary parades, including the latest one. Its previous parade was held in April last year to mark the 90th founding anniversary of the Korean People's Revolutionary Army.

North Korea displayed intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) with nuclear attack capability at a massive military parade to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the establishment of its armed forces, local media reported on Thursday.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un attended the event with his wife Ri Sol-ju, apparent second child Ju-ae, and other senior military officials, but gave no public speech.
Kim, dressed in a long black coat and a felt hat, smiled and waved to the crowd, according to photos released by the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA). His attire was reminiscent of the late country's founder, Kim Il-sung.
It said the parade was held in Kim Il Sung Square on Wednesday to mark the Korean People's Army (KPA) anniversary.
Kim's regime has staged 13 military parades since his father's death in late 2011.
The military also displayed a range of new ballistic missiles, including its Hwasong-17 ICBMs on a mobile launcher, as well as "tactical nuclear units" in a demonstration of its "war deterrence and counterstrike capabilities," according to the news agency.
Earlier on Tuesday, at a banquet in Pyongyang to commemorate the KPA's establishment anniversary, Kim praised his armed forces, saying they are the people who have dedicated their lives to the country.
"I never doubt that you will be as brave as always, dedicating your lives to the eternal prosperity of the country and the wellbeing of the people, true to the letters written on the glorious military colors," Kim was quoted as saying by the KCNA.
"Even under the harsh circumstances as now, our army is demonstrating its inexhaustible strength as the armed forces of the Workers' Party of Korea and the vanguard of the class," he added.
On Monday, Kim ordered his military to increase combat exercises during the fourth enlarged meeting of the Eighth Central Military Commission of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK).
His latest order to the military came after a meeting between US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and his South Korean counterpart Lee Jong-sup in Seoul last week, during which the two sides agreed to bolster the level and scale of this year's combined military exercises and training.
Washington and Seoul also agreed to work closely together in the future to ensure that US strategic assets are deployed in a timely and coordinated manner.
Tensions on Korean Peninsula escalated late last year when North Korea launched at least 60 missiles while South Korea and the US held joint military drills.
This month, the US and South Korea will also hold the Deterrence Strategy Committee table-top exercises.
