Capturing the Spirit of Oakland Halloween Tours

Event Date:

Thursday, October 18 — Sunday, October 28 at 5:30 PM to 10:30 PM


Enjoy historic Oakland Cemetery after dark at the award-winning Capturing the Spirit of Oakland Halloween Tours, an autumn tradition in Atlanta! One of the only times to experience Oakland Cemetery after dark, Capturing the Spirit brings to life the stories of some of the cemetery’s noted residents. A costumed docent guides you through the cemetery’s beautifully-lit Victorian gardens as you hear the stories of Atlanta’s sons and daughters come to life. Designed to “enlighten, not frighten,” Capturing the Spirit of Oakland is family-friendly, but is recommended for children 8 and up. Capturing the Spirit of Oakland is a sell-out event, with tickets selling out within weeks of release in July.

Tickets go on sale to Historic Oakland Foundation members on July 1, and to the general public on July 15.
