Media Credentialing Requests Due by August 09, 2018


WHAT: The Last Annual Alcatraz Alumni Reunion

DETAILS: The Alcatraz Alumni Reunion is a gathering of former guards and their families that experienced jobs and life on the island during its operation as a federal penitentiary. As fewer former officers and former convicts (persons formerly incarcerated) are able to attend than in the past, 2018 marks the last annual Alumni Day. The day will include presentations from former officers and their children. Please note: no former convicts at Alcatraz Island will be in attendance this year. 
WHEN: Sunday, August 12
WHERE: Alcatraz Island; Pier 33 Alcatraz Landing

MEDIA CREDENTIALS: Limited space available.

Only two credentialed press per outlet.
No media set-up area.


Event credentials issued by the National Park Service are required to obtain access to any of the designated media areas. Credentialed members of the media interested in covering the event must RSVP by August 9 at 6 p.m. PST. 

Additional information regarding credentialing pick-up and other important details will be sent in advance of event to RSVP’d media.
