Oakland Cemetery to host a weekend filled with holiday activities for the whole family!
Head to Oakland Cemetery on December 4, for an awesome weekend of festive activities. This unique seasonal open house features holiday fun for the whole family! Best of all, no tickets are required for this free event.
Several mausoleums around Oakland’s Bell Tower will be decorated for the holidays by local garden clubs and designers. The picture perfect decorations are guaranteed to get you into the spirit of the season, as the enchanting yet eerie grounds turn into a winter wonderland.
However, it doesn’t stop there! Enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of the holiday season at their Wreath Sale. Shop for seasonally embellished wreaths, garlands, specialty Christmas trees, and assorted greenery. You can even personalize it so it matches your own festive décor back home. In addition, there’s a pop-up shop and an artists market for all your holiday shopping needs.
Before you leave, make sure you catch a tour of the cemetery. The grounds are famous for their insightful tours, with beautiful gardens, famous inhabitants, and an untouchably rich history. Early city officials purchased six acres in 1850 to be a public burial ground for a young-but-fast-growing town of Atlanta. So you know there’s going to be a lot to talk about.
Visit Victorian Holiday at Oakland Cemetery, taking place on December 4 & 5 from 11am until 4pm. You can find Oakland Cemetery at 248 Oakland Ave SE, 30312. Visit their website for more information.
