About This Site
Memorial Day is the last Monday of every May. Federal law sets the day aside from work to remember those who have died during their U.S. military service. Making time on Memorial Day to attend one of the many beautiful commemorations held around Oregon is an important way to respect the sacrifices of others, deepen community ties, and make this federal holiday more personally meaningful. This site is dedicated to helping you discover Memorial Day ceremonies near you. It’s a public service powered by the spirit of volunteerism.
Each year we reach out to communities across Oregon to verify and update information about their Memorial Day commemorations. Please get in touch if you have any questions about any event or if you have information we have missed. Simply reply below or at the bottom of any specific page on the site. We pride ourselves in getting back to people promptly, especially as Memorial Day in Oregon draws nearer and folks make final plans. Note that your post comes to us first, so we see if it is an internal inquiry or something you want posted on the site. We never post or share your email address.
Thanks for visiting. We look forward to your comments and feedback. Be well and be safe on Memorial Day and every day!
