Events at Memorial Park

Even though our cemetery is a place to put our loved ones to rest, it is really designed for the living.

We hold several special events throughout the year, including on Memorial Day, a Concert in the Park in the fall and a Holiday Remembrance Ceremony in early winter. All of these provide families a time to gather, reflect and remember.


Memorial Day

Monday, May 29, 2023

Each Memorial Day, our cemetery provides a place for the community to gather and remember our heroes in the military and civil services. The grave of veterans can be decorated with American flags available at the cemetery gates.

We also hold a Memorial Day Remembrance Ceremony on Memorial Day. During the ceremony a guest speaker will make remarks and dedicate a memorial wreath to members of our military and civil service.

Please join us Monday, May 29 at 10:00 a.m. in the Serve & Protect Garden (near the Gage Blvd. entrance).

Concert in the Park

Sunday, September 17, 2023

The Concert in the Park is a free, annual event established in 2009, featuring the Kings of Swing. The 15-piece Topeka band specializes in swing music of the 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s and plays in the natural amphitheater created by the open space northeast of the Reflection Pond. The Topeka High School Drumline also makes an appearance and dazzles the crowd during intermission.

The concert is a great opportunity for individuals and families to listen to some fine music in a beautiful, park-like atmosphere. In 2011, we introduced a dance floor for audience members to showcase their swing-dancing skills. We hope to see you at our next concert for another round of great music! 

Please join us Sunday, Sept. 17 from 2:00-4:00 p.m.
