Special Event: Williamsburg Military Tattoo

Special Events

Open to the Public

Witness the Colonial Williamsburg Fifes and Drums in a thrilling torch-lit march down Duke of Gloucester Street as guest units join them from across the nation! Originally a signal for soldiers to return to barracks before curfew, tattoos evolved into elaborate displays of military music and displays. The Williamsburg Military Tattoo is a highlight of Drummers Call weekend, offering the rare opportunity to see multiple corps showcase their skills.


Parking near the Historic Area is recommended. If you plan to park at the Colonial Williamsburg Visitor Center, please check the bus schedule.
