Please note that due to safety concerns, once you park in the cemetery, you will not be able to leave until the ceremony and the placement of the wreaths is complete. Vehicles will be directed to exit the cemetery onto Herndon Parkway only. Overflow parking and parking for those who may need to leave before the event is over is available across Dranesville Road at Herndon High School (700 Bennett Street).
Parking InstructionsParking on-site at the cemetery is limited, so carpooling is strongly encouraged. Enter from the Dranesville Road entrance (831 Dranesville Road) and you will be directed to available parking. Please note that the Herndon Parkway entrance will be closed on Saturday. Additional parking is available across the street from the cemetery at Herndon High School.
