Featuring the Eternal Flame at Providence and a guest performance by R-Mean, this march will be a commemoration. The Eternal Flame began in Yerevan and has been traveling the globe to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. The Eternal Flames brings our community together for a vigil and ceremony to commemorate our martyrs and honor the community we’ve built.
The event will be on Saturday June 28 and will go from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. 6:30pm will be when the vigil at North Burial Ground Martyr’s Monument begins, followed by the Eternal Flame March at Martyr’s Monument to Statehouse at 7pm. It will conclude with the Ceremony of Honor at the Statehouse, which will begin at 8pm. Guests are encouraged to join for the ceremony even if they do not partake in the march.
