The City of Menifee welcomes the community to join us in honoring the brave men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice. Menifee's Memorial Day Remembrance Ceremony will take place at Central Park (30268 Civic Plaza Drive, Menifee, CA., 92586) on Monday, May 29 at 10 a.m.
The ceremony is free to the community and will include special presentations, guest speakers, a remembrance message, and a wreath-laying. Attendees will be given flowers to place around the memorial wreath to honor their loved ones during the ceremony.
Prior to the ceremony, the City will host a Memorial Day 5K race with all proceeds to benefit VFW Post 1956. The 5K, which is being professionally sanctioned by Finished Results, will begin at 7 a.m. at Central Park and will loop around the Paloma Wash Trail. The awards ceremony will begin at 7:45 a.m. for all divisions, including the Masters Division (35+), Veterans, First Responders, Police, and overall (age groups).

Throughout the year, Menifee families may honor military veterans and active duty service members by purchasing a military banner through the City of Menifee’s Banner Program. These Banners exhibit the military portrait of the service member, along with their name and affiliation to the United States Armed Forces that is supplied by family members.
