Capturing the Spirit of Oakland Halloween Tour is happening in Oct-Atlanta

Capturing the Spirit of Oakland Halloween Tour

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 in 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. 

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.

This event is appropriate for children 8 and above.

Tickets must be purchased in advance. No tickets will be sold at the gates. Please make your purchase carefully. No refunds or exchanges. Space is limited and tickets do sell out early.
