INDOORS: Commonwealth’s 67th Annual Memorial Day Ceremony

**Due to the weather, this year’s Memorial Day Ceremony has been moved indoors. The event will still take place at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, May 29, but seating will be extremely limited.**

If you prefer to watch from home, the ceremony will be broadcast on TV on WTVR-TV  CBS 6, 6.1 & 6.3 in Richmond.

We will also be live-streaming the broadcast here on this page, and on the Memorial Facebook Page.


The laying of memorial wreaths will take place in the Shrine of Memory immediately following the ceremony.

The Memorial Day Concert by the Richmond Cadet Alumni Band and Friends will still be at 2:00pm but will now take place indoors in Veterans Hall.

Wherever you may be, we hope you will join us to remember and honor those who died while serving in the United States armed forces.
