Ladies and Gentlemen,
The 2014 parade season has come to a close and we at the Barracks would like to
say “thank you” for your continued support and enthusiasm. It is because of you
that the traditions of Marine Barracks Washington live on and the parades are
successful events year after year. The dates of the 2015 Marine Barracks
Washington evening and sunset parades season will be published on this site on
or about March 1st, 2015. At that time, the online reservation system will be
available to receive requests. We encourage you to visit our website for any
parade season information updates.
Evening parades will be conducted every Friday at 8:45 p.m. beginning early May
and continuing through the end of August. Seating for the evening parade
generally requires a reservation and can be requested online by accessing this
website once the dates are made available. We also have a general admissions
line at each Friday evening parade that we use to fill any unclaimed seats.
Seats are released at 8:00 pm each Friday evening and are filled on a first
come, first served basis.
The sunset parades will be conducted every Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. beginning in
early June, and will continue through the second Tuesday in August. Parades in
August begin at 6:30 p.m. Parades at the Marine Corps War Memorial are "open
seating" and reservations are not required.
For any questions or concerns not addressed on our website, feel free to email
the Protocol Office at M_MBW_PROTOCOL@usmc.mil.
Thank you again for your interest
and continued support.
Capt Leslie Harkness
Director of Protocol
Marine Barracks Washington
