Alcatraz Reunion

Alcatraz Island Tour in San Francisco Bay

Alumni Day on Alcatraz
Every year, the Park Service hosts its Annual Alcatraz Reunion — former inmates, guards and families who lived on the island during its heyday, come together to share their stories with each other and the public. Hear firsthand accounts of their crimes and what life was like on the "Rock.'' As you can imagine, the people and their stories are very interesting!

The Annual Alcatraz Reunion usually takes place on a Sunday, on the second weekend of August (may be held on Sat & Sun). Date is subject to change, so be sure to call Alcatraz to confirm ahead of time.
