If anyone is planning to attend National Wreaths Across America Day at Arlington National Cemetery on Saturday December 18, you will want to read the following information.

Are you attending National Wreaths Across America Day at Arlington National Cemetery this Saturday?

Registrations are still available for the 9:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. entries at the Ord & Weitzel Gate near Rosslyn and for the 10:00 a.m. entry at South Gate near Pentagon City. Register at https://learn.wreathsacrossamerica.org/anc2021

There are a few different ways for you to get here! Please be prepared for increased travel patterns.

PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION:

We encourage you to take public transportation, but please note that there may be some delays on Metro due to reduced service levels. Please exit through the same gate you entered and use the same Metro station for your return travel.

The best option is to take the Metro stop closest to the gate you registered at: Pentagon Metro for South Gate, Arlington Cemetery Metro for the main entrance, and Rosslyn Metro for Ord & Weitzel Gate.

Customers traveling to the event on Metro are encouraged to purchase fare ahead of time. The best option, to avoid lines, is SmarTrip mobile pay (https://wmata.com/fares/MobilePay/index.cfm). Download the SmarTrip app for iOS or Android to transfer an existing SmarTrip card to your mobile device or purchase a mobile SmarTrip card ($2 card fee applies). Add enough value for your round-trip travel or buy a One-Day Pass for $13.

RIDE SHARE:

If you choose to arrive by ride share (Uber or Lyft), the drop off and pick up location is at the Hayes Lot in Pentagon City (1100 S Hayes St.).

PARKING:

Parking will be available in the Pentagon South Parking Lot and Pentagon North Parking Lot. As this is a walking event, please prepare to walk to your registered gate from your Metro or parking location. You may access the ANC Main Gate on Memorial Ave. by pedestrian walking paths from these two parking lots. The ANC Parking Garage will be reserved for handicap parking only. There is no vehicle access inside the cemetery.

ADA ACCESSIBILITY:

There is no vehicle access inside the cemetery. The ANC Parking Garage will be reserved for handicap parking only.

To access the ANC Parking Garage, drivers must first go to the Pentagon North Parking Lot and present a handicapped placard or have a handicapped license plate. Drivers will then be escorted to the garage. This ADA accessible access point for parking is only available until 7:30 a.m.

After 7:30 a.m. or until the ANC parking garage is full, ADA accessible volunteers should park in either the Pentagon North Parking Lot or the Pentagon South Parking Lot. There will be a Wreaths Across America shuttle from the Pentagon North Parking Lot to the South Gate entrance. If you choose to follow this option, then please register for the volunteer entry at the South Gate entrance.

With winter quickly approaching, don't forget to keep enough fuel in your tank at all times. A half-full fuel tank can help you avoid these situations:
👉 Condensation can form in your fuel tank and eventually cause damage and freezing fuel lines.
👉 Your safety could be compromised if you get stuck in the harsh weather. Having enough fuel in your tank can help you keep warm in case it takes longer than expected to reach your destination.
