Mark your calendars as the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) hosts the annual Talladega D-Day event, set to be held June 6-9, 2024, at Talladega Marksmanship Park in Alabama. Registration is currently open, so sign up now to join this commemorative occasion!

This year, the Talladega D-Day event will honor the 80th anniversary of the Allied Forces landing at Normandy Beach in France. Guests will be able to celebrate the heroes of the World War II generation through diverse marksmanship competitions and activities scattered throughout the 500 acres of Talladega Marksmanship Park.

For the first time, the 2024 D-Day event will feature a shotgun team event.

New for 2024 – D-Day will include a special shotgun tournament on Talladega’s 15-station Sporting Clays Loop! The competition will take place on Saturday, June 8, and will include 200 clays for two-person teams. Register for the D-Day Shotgun Tournament at

Rifle events will be held on Talladega’s outdoor electronic target line.

The 2024 D-Day event will also include the return of contemporary rifle match favorites like the Roosevelt Commemorative and Garand Iron Man EIC Rifle matches, as well as a Rimfire Sporter Rifle Benchrest Match and Benchrest Vintage Match – both ideal for those just beginning in rifle competition or those with ailments, eager to get back on the range.

Along with a variety of educational courses, CMP’s traditional Games events such as the GSMM, Carbine and Vintage Sniper rifle matches and pistol matches like the 1911 As-Issued and Military & Police will round out the full schedule. Those competing in the John C. Garand Match with As-Issued M1 Rifles will have the chance to earn a GCA (Garand Collectors Association) Master Marksman medal, based on score.

Like rifle, pistol events are open to individuals of all competitive experience levels.

Come be part of the festivities on this special date in U.S. history. For more information on Talladega D-Day, visit
