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
call Alcatraz to confirm
ahead of time.
National Park Service:
The Great Escape
Only five men are known to have escaped from Alcatraz — back in June
1962. Although presumed dead, they were never found... and to this day, it
still remains a mystery.
Alcatraz was featured in the 1996 film "The Rock" as
well as dozens
of other movies, including "Escape From Alcatraz" — the
historic site has also been the subject of numerous books and video games.
