The 2019 Around the World Cultural Food Festival will be held at Freedom Plaza on Saturday August 17 from 11am-7pm. Stop #2, White House Visitor Center, will remain open, but please expect re-routes and delays.
We will be closed for Night tours on Saturday evening due to large private event.
Just outside the gates of the cemetery is the United States Marine Corps War Memorial which is for all Marines who have given their lives in service since 1775, but it is often called the Iwo Jima Memorial because it depicts the famous flag raising on top of Mt. Surabachi. The memorial was dedicated November 10, 1954, the 179th birthday of the Corps. It is one of the world’s largest bronze statues and it’s quiet breathtaking to see in person.
