29th Annual Candlelight Vigil

8:00 pm
National Mall | between 4th and 7th streets, NW, Washington, DC

Each year on May 13th, the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund produces its annual Candlelight Vigil—a signature event of National Police Week in Washington, DC. During the Candlelight Vigil, fallen officers whose names were engraved on the Memorial’s walls that spring are formally dedicated. In 2017, the Candlelight Vigil will be held on the National Mall between 4th & 7th Streets. In addition to the lighting of candles and reading of names, the Candlelight Vigil includes remarks by dignitaries, and musical tributes performed to honor the memory of these fallen officers.
