A procession led by the Isle of Wight Council's mace bearer will start at the Guildhall at 10.50am arriving in Sts Thomas' Square where members of the procession will join other organisations for prayers before a two minute silence at 11am.
A wreath laying ceremony will follow, before a Service of Remembrance in Newport Minster.
A number of other services will be taking place across the Island at the same time.
Field of Remembrance

Meanwhile, a special Field of Remembrance will once again be opened at Carisbrooke Castle this year to commemorate those in the uniformed services who lost their lives in service of their country.
The field was introduced in the Princess Beatrice Garden at Carisbrooke Castle in 2010. It was established by the Lord-Lieutenant of the Isle of Wight, Major General Martin White, as a place where residents can pay their respects around the time of Remembrance Sunday.
The castle will open its doors for people to visit the field between 10am and 1pm on Thursday 8 November, as well as on Saturday 10 November and Sunday 11 November between 10am and 4pm (but not Friday 9 November).
Crosses can be purchased at the castle with proceeds going to the Royal British Legion.
A formal Service of Remembrance, which members of the public are welcome to attend, will take place at the castle on Thursday 8 November at 10.45am. Following the service, refreshments will be available with proceeds going to the Isle of Wight Women’s Institute.
