Memorial Day at Forest Lawn Cemeteries

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

Forest Lawn will honor fallen veterans with free Memorial Day remembrances at each of its six Southern California locations: Cathedral City, Covina Hills, Cypress, Glendale,
Hollywood Hills, and Long Beach. On Monday, May 27, 2024, the family-friendly, parkwide
remembrances will bring generations together to commemorate the lives and valor of
American veterans with patriotic music, wreath layings, presentations and retirings of the flag, keynote addresses, presidential proclamations, invocations, giveaways, arts & crafts, coffee, sweet treats, and more.

The Forest Lawn-Hollywood Hills commemoration is the featured event this year and features speaker Dr. Brenda Threatt; emcee Michael Ellington; an invocation and benediction by Monsignor Frank Hicks; a presidential proclamation by Police Deputy Chief Alan Hamilton; music by the Los Angeles Concert Band; and family-friendly activities.

Forest Lawn-Glendale’s celebration includes the Glendale Sunrise Rotary’s Field of Honor American flag dedication, taking place beginning Wednesday May 22, and culminating with a stage event on Monday, May 27, at 11:00 AM. Flags are available for a $50.00 sponsorship, with proceeds benefiting local veterans.

Since 1915, Forest Lawn’s rolling hills have set the stage for Memorial Day remembrances that inspire respect and reverence for the brave members of the military. “Forest Lawn’s Memorial Day remembrances hold a special place in our hearts. The joyous commemorations celebrate life and honor while providing heartfelt moments to pause and remember,” says Rodolfo Saenz, Forest Lawn’s Senior Vice President, Marketing. “We are proud to bring our communities together for six distinct patriotic events.”

The Memorial Day remembrances at Forest Lawn take place on Monday, May 27, 2024, with
the Cathedral City, Covina Hills, Cypress, Hollywood Hills, and Long Beach events beginning at 10:00 AM, and the Glendale Field of Honor beginning at 11:00 AM with the Forest Lawn
commemoration beginning at 1:00 PM. Guests are encouraged to arrive one hour prior to the start time of Forest Lawn’s Memorial Day events to allow ample time to find parking and enjoy a walk through the grounds before the day’s events begin. Admission and parking are FREE for all events. Visit for more information.
