US Marine Corps Sunset Parade Tours

Overlooking the Potomac River at the entrance to Arlington National Cemetery, at the site of the U.S. Marine War Corps Memorial, the Marine Drum and Bugle Corps presents the free Marine Sunset Review Parade (aka The Sunset Parade) on Tuesdays from 7 to 8:30 p.m., generally the first Tuesday in June through mid-August. Wearing red-and-white dress uniforms, the corps – who have been conducting these evening tributes since 1956 -- performs a variety of military standards and vintage tunes from wartime eras.

Visitors are encouraged to bring blankets, chairs and picnics and spread out on the surrounding lawns to enjoy the Parade. No on-site seating is provided.

Practical Information

Public off-site parking is available just outside Arlington National Cemetery, and free shuttle service is provided. Or, the Memorial is about a 10-minute walk from the Metrorail’s stations for Rosslyn (serving the Orange and Blue Lines) and Arlington National Cemetery (serving the Blue Line). On parade evenings, only limited street parking is available, and taking the subway is highly recommended.
