We have 4 Ranger talks scheduled on April 15 and 16. Join Park Ranger Joe Mohr as he asks: Why do we care more about the loss of the Titanic than other shipwrecks? Are you afraid of Icebergs? Talks will be held:
Friday, April 15 - 10:00am and 2:00pm
Saturday, April 16 - 12:00 pm and 2:00pm
Meet at the Titanic Memorial. No RSVP required.
See our full list of Talks & Tours and please come to one or more! In addition to the scheduled Talks & Tours, Ranger Mohr will be in the park on the 15th and 16th for informal discussions and to answer questions.
Just 5 Days Left to Buy Tickets
There are just 5 more days to buy tickets for the Gala & Tribute on April 16! Join over 85 friends and neighbors who have already bought their tickets, and share your love of the Park with NPS Rangers and community leaders who will be attending. We'll reveal the latest plans for improving the park while we sip wine and share Titanic-inspired hors d'oervres like Chartreuse Peaches.
Tickets are on sale through April 9 - make sure you get yours before the deadline!
Note: Arena Stage maintains its own COVID protocols to ensure that guests and patrons can enjoy their facilities safely. These precautions may be more stringent than DC COVID requirements, and are subject to change.
We still have volunteer shifts available from April 14 - 17. Volunteers get this snazzy hat to wear! Sign up using Signup Genius to help us:
Staff the Information Table - We have two-hour shifts from April 14 - 17 to staff the Friends information table. This is a great way to meet neighbors and share your love of the Park.
Set up/Tear down Park Displays - We need a crew to move the commemorative displays to the park, and then move them to a nearby location off of the Park site, each day.
Please sign up using Signup Genius for one or more shift. We'll contact you orientation dates and times.
In addition to being the date that the Titanic sank in 1912, April 15th is the date in 1848 that 77 men, women, and children, enslaved by prominent families in the District of Columbia, boarded "The Pearl" on the Southwest Waterfront and began their quest for freedom. The Second Annual Remember the Pearl Walk will be held:
Friday, April 15 at 6:00pm
Gather at the corner of 4th and I Streets SW, near Westminster Church
Our Titanic events will conclude on April 15 by 5:00pm so that everyone can join the Remember the Pearl Walk.
Have you wondered whether families were separated as they tried to board lifeboats? One of our Stories of Bravery, Tragedy, and Survival tells about Alice Catherine Cleaver and the Allison Family.
Just a reminder: We'll be sending weekly emails to keep you up-to-date on the 100th Anniversary. We'll go back to monthly emails later in April.
