JOHNSON CITY, Texas – Make plans to join Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park and Lyndon B. Johnson State Park and Historic Site in celebrating the 115th anniversary of President Johnson’s birth. At 10:00 am on Sunday, August 27th, the National Park Service will host the annual wreath-laying ceremony at President Johnson’s gravesite in the Johnson Family Cemetery at the LBJ Ranch. The ceremony continues a tradition that Mrs. Claudia “Lady Bird” Johnson began in 1973.

To view the wreath-laying ceremony, stop first at the Lyndon B. Johnson State Park to pick up a free vehicle permit and map. The state park visitor center will open at 8:30 am. Upon leaving the state park, drive 1.5 miles east on Ranch Road 1 and cross the Pedernales River to the entrance gate of the LBJ Ranch. The gate opens at 9:00 am. The Johnson Family Cemetery is located just inside the ranch entrance. Please allow plenty of time to arrive at the cemetery prior to 10:00 am.

To allow for staffing of the event, the national park visitor center in Johnson City will open at 12:00 noon on Sunday, August 27, 2023.
