Memorial Day

We observe Memorial Day to honor the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving our country.  

On Memorial Day, Tryon Palace offers FREE One Day Pass admission to all Veterans, Retired and Active-Duty military members, as well as their spouses and dependent children.

At 1:00 PM on the Historic Site, there will be a Minute of Silence, *followed by the firing of a Verbruggen Cannon.

*Cannon firing is contingent on weather.
