Historic Oakland Cemetery receives many visitors each day, but only at Halloween do the gates stay open after dark. Witness the magnificent final resting place of Atlanta’s sons and daughters during the Capturing the Spirit of Oakland 2013 Halloween Tours. Join us this year and hear first-hand accounts about our city’s past, narrated by a host of Oakland’s eternal “residents.” You’ll also see gorgeous candlelit mausoleums in this one-of-a-kind annual tradition. Bring a flashlight and wear comfortable walking shoes. There will be beer, wine, and soft drinks for sale, and browse Oakland’s Museum Shop for unique finds.
Guided tours start at 5:30 pm each night at the Bell Tower and last approximately one hour. You must have your ticket to enter the cemetery. To ensure all ticket holders are accommodated, tour tickets are sold in timed increments, and a limited number of tickets are available. To buy tickets, click links above.
Limited free parking is available near the main entrance and on neighboring streets. Due to the event, parking inside the cemetery is not possible. Carpooling or taking MARTA to the King Memorial Station is recommended.
There is no rain date. In case of a severe weather cancellation, ticket holders will receive via the mail, a free pass for a future guided tour at Oakland.
This event is appropriate for children 8 and above.
Please note: There is no promotion code or discount for this event. There is an additional processing fee applied by TicketAlternative for each ticket purchased. Due to the historic nature of Oakland Cemetery, not all areas of the park are ADA accessible.
