With 100 Nights of Taps we honor the fallen laid to rest at the Gettysburg National Cemetery. Beginning on Memorial Day and ending on Labor day, each evening a bugler will sound taps at the cemetery in Gettysburg, PA. Taps is sounded at 7 pm.
Opening day ceremonies will be held on Memorial Day, May 31.
Ceremonies include performance of Cascading Taps throughout the cemetery by all buglers who register, beginning at 7:00 pm, along with remarks by Lt. Colonel Erik Nordberg (ret.), Wendy Allen, Jari Villanueva and representatives of The National Park Service.
Additional special ceremonies will be held on D-Day June 6 during the Gettysburg Brass Band Festival on June 13, on Independence Day July 4, and Labor Day September 7. We will add additional special events as they become finalized, and will be announced on the Facebook Page and on this website.
100 Nights of Taps is open to buglers and trumpeters of all ages.
You must register to sound Taps during the event. You may pick any open date, and you may also select a second date to be a backup in case the primary bugler cannot attend. When you register you are promising to attend on the date you select, at the appointed time, and sound Taps.
Detailed information including our requirements will be available when registration opens. This event is rain or shine.
