The Harvest Hunt

Event Date:

Friday, November 24 — Sunday, November 26 at 12:00 AM to 12:00 AM


Gather a group of friends for a day of post-Thanksgiving sleuthing on this self-guided scavenger hunt throughout historic Oakland Cemetery!

The Harvest Hunt will take place on Thanksgiving weekend. No reservations are required to participate, simply purchase your Harvest Hunt packet (1 per team) at the Visitors Center & Museum Shop (open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and follow cryptic clues to solve riddles.

The Harvest Hunt packet ($20) includes one self-guided tour map ($5 value) that can be used on return visits. All proceeds from The Harvest Hunt benefit Historic Oakland Foundation’s mission to preserve, restore, enhance, and share Oakland Cemetery. Harvest Hunt packets can only be purchased Nov. 24-26.

Teams who get all the answers correct will be entered into a drawing for select prizes. To be eligible to win, completed answer sheets must be returned to the Visitors Center by 5 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 26. Be sure to complete the contact form in your Harvest Hunt packet to ensure you’ll be contacted if you win!
