What is Capturing the Spirit?
Capturing the Spirit of Oakland Halloween tours, an Atlanta Halloween tradition, enlighten rather than frighten. The tours bring to life the stories of some of the cemetery’s notable residents.
Enjoy an exclusive, one-of-a-kind Capturing the Spirit of Oakland VIP experience on Monday, October 26.
Capturing the Spirit VIP ticket holders will enjoy a delicious three-course meal including drinks at nearby Firepit Pizza Tavern. Guests will have the cemetery to themselves after-dark as they enjoy a private Capturing the Spirit Halloween tour experience.
Note: Tables at Firepit will be spaced six feet apart, and guests will wear masks except when eating or drinking.

What if the event can’t be held due to COVID-19?
When purchasing tickets, you will be asked to choose whether, in the event that Capturing the Spirit is canceled, you would prefer to defer your ticket until our 2021 Capturing the Spirit of Oakland event or donate your ticket to Historic Oakland Foundation. Please note that tickets are non-refundable. If the event is canceled, 2020 ticket holders will receive access to a virtual Capturing the Spirit of Oakland experience. Whether you choose to defer or donate your ticket, 2020 ticket holders will be given priority access in selecting tickets and time slots for 2021’s event.
