For nearly 50 years, Williamsburg Memorial Park has proudly sponsored an annual 2-hour live Memorial Day Celebration. Unfortunately, because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to cancel this year’s event.
However, we will still be placing American flags on the graves of more than 1,200 U.S. veterans who are buried here, which includes 21 new interments since last year. We encourage you and your family to visit your loved one this Memorial Day weekend and see how we honor those who have honored us with their service. FREE American flags will be available this Memorial Day weekend at our Customer Care Center so you can decorate your loved one’s grave.
Rest assured, that we remain committed to this important community event and will restart our live Memorial Day Celebration in 2022. In the meantime, we invite you to view our 2020 Memorial Day video below, which includes a special message from our General Manager, Angela Byrum, a brief history of Memorial Day by Tim Dice, and an amazing performance of “God Bless the USA” by Ray Gresham, 1st Sergeant, U.S. Army (retired). The video also includes dozens of heartwarming photos from some of our previous celebrations and concludes with a matched donation offer for the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank. Enjoy.
