Bedford’s Citizen of the Year has been an annual tradition since 1979.

The Citizen of the Year is chosen by a confidential committee and is honored by riding in the Bedford Day parade, being celebrated at a reception coupled with the annual Bedford Minutemen Change of Command Ceremony, and participating in Pole Capping Day and the Bedford Common’s annual tree lighting.
