2020 Fredericksburg National Cemetery Illumination

Consistent with emergency “Safer at Home” Executive Order implemented in the Commonwealth of Virginia, Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park and its partners have canceled this year’s Illumination of the Fredericksburg National Cemetery, scheduled for Memorial Day weekend. The event commonly attracts between 4,000 and 9,000 visitors.

In the meantime, the park will be sharing in virtual form stories, videos, insights, and short virtual tours via our
Social Media pages.
