The annual pilgrimage is held every year on the last Saturday of April at the northwest corner of the former camp site, near the cemetery monument. Each year, over 1,000 people from diverse backgrounds, including students, teachers, community members, clergy and former incarcerees attend the Pilgrimage, which commemorates the unjust imprisonment of over 110,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry in ten American concentration camps, located in the most desolate, isolated regions of the United States. Manzanar was the first of these camps to be established.
The Manzanar National Historic site is approximately 210 miles north of Los Angeles, along Highway 395 and takes approximately 4 1/2 hours driving time.
Manzanar is located between Lone Pine and Independence. It is on the west side of Highway 395, approximately 9 miles north of Lone Pine on your left. You will notice two stone houses.
