With 100 Nights of Taps we honor the fallen laid to rest at the Gettysburg National Cemetery. Beginning on Memorial Day and ending on September 11 (the 20th anniversary of 9-11), each evening a bugler will sound taps at the cemetery in Gettysburg, PA. Taps is sounded at 7 pm.

Closing Ceremonies will be held on September 11, 2021

Ceremonies include performance of Cascading Taps throughout the cemetery by all buglers who register, beginning at 6:30 pm, along with remarks by Lt. Colonel Erik Nordberg (ret.), Wendy Allen, Jari Villanueva and representatives of The Gettysburg National Military Park.

Registration link and list of registered buglers follows the video…

Additional special ceremonies will be held on D-Day June 6; during the Gettysburg Brass Band Festival on June 12; and Independence Day July 4. We will add additional special events as they become finalized, and will be announced on the Facebook Page and on this website.
