Titanic 110th Anniversary

Celebrating the future of Titanic Memorial Park
Commemorating the 110th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic

Join us April 14 - 17, 2022 for a series of events hosted by the Friends of Titanic Memorial Park promoting:

New Engagement

Join us as we celebrate five years of collaboration and community, where we have partnered with the National Park Service to make simple maintenance and landscape enhancements, improving a beloved space that has increased gatherings of friends, family, and fishermen in this quiet oasis that anchors the bustling 21st century SW DC.

 

New Perspectives

A series of displays in the park will tell individual stories of some passengers and crew on the ship to humanize the disaster, and focus on the role of class distinction in those stories from that fateful night. Ranger talks in the park will further illuminate the stories of the sinking that resonate today.
