The Fredericksburg National Cemetery Luminaria is an annual event featuring over 15,000 lanterns in the cemetery – one for each soldier buried in the cemetery grounds. This event takes place on the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend. The luminaria honors soldiers who have died in the service of this country.
Details about the upcoming 2024 luminaria will be released in the winter/spring of 2024.
Fredericksburg National Cemetery is located atop Marye's Heights. Reaching the cemetery requires walking up a short, but steep hill. For the event, we will have golf carts available for transportation up to the cemetery for those who require assistance.
We strive to make our programs as enjoying and fullfilling for as many people as possible. If you or a member of your party needs any accomodations or has any concerns, feel free to contact the park and we will do our best to meet your needs.
