Two major annual remembrance ceremonies take place at Arlington National Cemetery's Memorial Amphitheater, on Memorial Day (last Monday of May) and Veterans Day (November 11). Some 5,000 visitors attend each of these national ceremonies, which are sponsored by the U.S. Army Military District of Washington. The president of the United States typically delivers an address at the Memorial Day ceremony.  

Numerous military and government organizations also conduct annual memorial services at the cemetery. All ceremonies and special events are free and open to the public.
