Since 1969 the Manzanar Committee, a non-profit educational organization, has sponsored an annual pilgrimage to Manzanar. Former internees, their families, friends, and a growing number of young people gather at the Manzanar cemetery to remember, to honor, and to carry the lessons of this experience into the future.

The event takes place on the last Saturday of April each year. It is free and open to the public.

Save the date Saturday April 30, 2016 the 47th Annual Manzanar Pilgrimage.
