We are excited to announce the 2017 Overnight Ceremonies will be held at Lincoln Memorial Plaza.
Lincoln Memorial Plaza
2 Lincoln Memorial Circle, NW
Washington, DC 20002
Overnight Walk Check-in will take place beginning at 4 p.m. on June 17.
As the sun sets, we will begin our journey at one of the most iconic monuments in Washington, DC – the Lincoln Memorial. Starting from the Lincoln Memorial Plaza, we will walk along the banks of the Potomac, past the Jefferson Memorial, the Ellipse and the Washington Monument. We will then continue past the Smithsonian Castle and around the Capitol Reflecting Pool.
Once on Capitol Hill, we will enjoy the scenic residences built during the 19th and 20th centuries along East Capitol Street, with the glowing U.S. Capitol in the background. The route will then wind past Union Station, the U.S. Navy Memorial, and the National Archives. We will then walk by the U.S. Treasury Department and The White House as we continue to Farragut Square Park, the location of our Midnight Snack.
From Farragut Square Park, we will make our way toward DuPont Circle and through Embassy Row. We will walk past the Dumbarton Oaks estate, and continue on through the heart of Georgetown. From there, we will walk through the George Washington University campus to return to the Lincoln Memorial for breakfast and our Closing Ceremony.
