Pulse 5 Year Remembrance Ceremony Livestream
On June 12 of each year, onePULSE Foundation holds an Annual Remembrance Ceremony at the site of the Pulse nightclub. The observance brings together the families of those whose lives were tragically taken and provides them a space to remember their loved ones in peace. We also honor all who survived, the brave first responders and our trauma teams who sacrificed so much to save so many.
This year on June 12 from 7 to 8 p.m. the Pulse Five-Year Remembrance Ceremony will take place at the Pulse Interim Memorial for a limited audience of Pulse families, survivors, first responders and those participating in the live ceremony.
The general public is invited to watch a live stream of the annual ceremony at the Frontyard Festival™ at Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.
The ceremony includes performances, comments from City of Orlando and Orange County representatives; onePULSE Foundation representatives; Pulse family members, survivors and first responders; and the Reading of the 49 Names by Pulse family members.
