Colonial Williamsburg is offering FREE admission during Veterans Day weekend, Friday through Monday, November 8-11, to all active duty Military, Reservists, Retirees, Veterans, National Guardsmen and their immediate dependents.*
Celebrate with special events all weekend, culminating in a march and ceremony honoring Americas veterans on Veterans Day.
Join us this Veterans Day weekend as we honor those who serve in the military. An afternoon march and ceremony honoring America's veterans feature the Colonial Williamsburg Fifes and Drums, Military Programs staff, and an address of gratitude to Williamsburg community veterans by Mrs. Washington, concluding with a commemoration service behind the Courthouse. All armed forces veterans are welcome and encouraged to participate.
Our Veterans Day programming begins with a brief ceremony honoring the men and women who have served in the military branches of the United States Armed Forces on Duke of Gloucester Street, in front of the Liberty Lounge entrance. Join Colonial Williamsburg Fifes & Drums, Virginia Military Garrison and Colonial Williamsburg Foundation employees for this heartfelt tribute.
The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and the Williamsburg Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution honor veterans passed with a memorial service including patriotic exercises and memorial wreath-laying on Sunday, November 10 at 3:30 p.m. in the Revolutionary War Cemetery behind the Governor’s Palace. The service is free and open to the community.
