Local Memorial Day Ceremonies


May 11, 2024

Philip Marx Central Park

East E Street, Tehachapi.

On Monday, May 27 at 11 a.m. Join us as we remember our fallen service members with pride this Memorial Day. Together we pay homage to those who have given us our freedom.

As part of the ceremony, we will be displaying photos of our fallen service members. We will be accepting submissions from Tehachapi residents for pictures of fallen service members until May 13 to remember and honor them that day and beyond.

To submit their photos, please visit http://www.tvrpd.org/memorial-day-ceremony/.

We will no longer have a Memorial Day parade, it will now take place on veterans Day moving forward.
