We're excited to bring back some crowd favorites as we celebrate 90 years of the Washington Town & Country Fair! In 2017, the response to the 9/11 NEVER FORGET Mobile Exhibit was so amazing, we knew we HAD to bring it back sometime in the future. When we learned new items had been added to the exhibit, it was an easy choice to bring it as the Chairman's exhibit for 2019! The exhibit will be open daily during the fair, 1:00-7:00 p.m. and will be located by the North (Shuttle) Gate.
In 2013, the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation launched its 9/11 NEVER FORGET Mobile Exhibit; a tribute to all those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, including, of course, the 343 members of the FDNY who made the ultimate sacrifice. The high-tech, 53-foot tractor-trailer, which transforms into a 1,000 square foot exhibit, is a tool to further educate citizens throughout the country about the events of that tragic day.
Welcomed around the country, from the Black Hills of South Dakota to the Tennessee State Fairgrounds, the memorial provides interactive education; including artifacts such as steel beams from the towers, documentary videos, and recordings of first responder radio transmissions. Interactive guided tours are carried out by FDNY firefighters who provide firsthand accounts of the day and its aftermath. The 9/11 NEVER FORGET Mobile Exhibit, which has traveled to nearly 30 states and Canada, has welcomed in over 350,000 people to date.
The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation is committed to ensuring WE NEVER FORGET.
