Admission to the event is free; donations are welcome.

As twilight deepens and obscures the Blue Ridge, the Memorial will honor the 4,414 men killed on D-Day. Arranged throughout the Memorial’s grounds, thousands of luminarias will shine in recognition of Overlord’s fallen and in tribute to the ultimate sacrifice each made to relight the lamp of freedom.

Nomad Coffee Co. will be on-site each night with hot drinks to help you stay warm while exploring the event.

To be included in the printed program, luminaria orders must be received by 5:00 p.m. EST Friday, December 6, 2019.
