Memorial Day Ceremony at Soldiers and Sailors Monument

May 27 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Honor Memorial Day observance at the city’s largest and most solemn ceremony. It honors veterans of all wars, and continues to pay special homage to New Yorkers who fell in the Civil War. Wreaths are laid at the portal of the monument by many veterans organizations and heritage groups, and they are joined by active duty, reserve, and cadet military units. Their homage ensures that the memory of the fallen is kept alive, that those who serve today are honored, and that the monument and its significance are preserved for future generations.
