Memorial Day Weekend at White Chapel

Memorial Day Weekend Events Have Been Cancelled, But Activities Honoring Our Heroes Continue

While White Chapel Memorial Park Cemetery will be open for visitation over Memorial Day Weekend, we will not be able to host our annual Memorial Day Concert on the Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend, nor can we host the annual Memorial Day Service at the Polar Bear Monument. Neither public gathering is permitted under Governor Whitmer's Executive Order 2020-77. We know this is terribly disappointing to everyone who has enjoyed the Concert and the Memorial Day services over the years. God willing, we will again be able to host these popular and meaningful events next year. Thank you for your understanding and please stay safe.

As has been our tradition, over Memorial Day weekend White Chapel will honor the heroes who served and sacrificed, by lining our causeways with American flags, placing wreaths at all of our military and war memorials and by placing carnations at the gravesites of “Michigan’s Own Polar Bear Division,” the brave young men who fought and died in the frigid tundra of Northern Russia at the end of WWI.

Memorial Day Weekend Information and Hours

White Chapel Memorial Park Cemetery will be open on Memorial Day Weekend - Friday & Saturday from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m., Sunday and Monday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Please note that the Temple of Memories remains closed to the public for visitation in accordance with Governor Whitmer's Executive Order.

White Chapel Memorial Park

White Chapel is a place that upholds all of the traditions associated with a cemetery, while moving beyond them to create new ones. We’re constantly at work to provide a beautiful, inviting environment teeming with life, hope and the sense of connection that makes all of our lives more fulfilling.

We do this with a park that absolutely exhilarates and energizes those who stroll through it. With events designed to honor the departed while inspiring the living. With acclaimed architecture and renowned statuary. Most important of all, we do this by constantly striving to offer a place at which people genuinely want to congregate.

We believe this is what our loved ones deserve: A place that invites people to come and celebrate the time they have shared together, by continuing to share time together.

A place where memory lives in beauty - in every sense of the word.
