Thanks to one of the team parents we have an opportunity to attend the Marine Barracks, Washington Evening Parade; a tradition of over 60 years held at the Oldest Post of the United States Marine Corps.

The Gates at Marine Barracks, Washington will open at 7:00 P.M. Please arrive to your assigned gate no later than 7:30 pm. Groups of 20 or more guests must arrive no later than 7:15 p.m. The general admission Gate will open at 8:00 p.m. and all unclaimed seats will be filled with general admission guests.

Due to a heightened security posture, please be advised that all guests will be required to present a government issued photo ID and walk through metal detectors. Purses, handbags, backpacks, and strollers will be searched for weapons or other contraband.

Public transportation is highly recommended because of the limited parking available in the vicinity of Marine Barracks Washington. We encourage you to arrive early and patronize the businesses and eateries along 8th Street and the Barracks Row community before entering Marine Barracks Washington. No food or drinks will be allowed during the Parade. The summer months in Washington D.C. are quite hot, we recommend to drink plenty of water on the day of the parade.
