Marine Barracks Washington
8th & I
Washington, D.C.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Due to the overwhelming patriotic support of the public, all Marine Barracks Washington Evening Parades are booked for the 2014 season! However, you may still express your appreciation of the sacrifice and service of our Marines by attending the Sunset Parades held at the Marine Corps War Memorial, Arlington, VA. Sunset Parades will be conducted every Tuesday at 7:00 PM beginning the first Tuesday in June, and continuing through the second Tuesday in August. Please note that the Sunset Parades will commence at 6:30 PM at the Marine Corps War Memorial at Arlington Cemetery on 5 August and 12 August.

Parades at the Marine Corps War Memorial are "open seating"; therefore reservations are not required. Feel free to come out and bring blankets or lawn chairs so that you can comfortably enjoy the performance.

You are encouraged to try the General Admissions Line at each Friday Evening Parade. Seats are released at 8:00 PM each Friday Evening and are filled on a first come, first served basis.

If you have questions of concerns you may contact the Protocol Office at (202)433-4073 or by email at

Thank you so much for your interest and continued support.


Leslie Harkness
Protocol Director
