Capturing the Spirit of Oakland Halloween Tours

October 20 @ 5:30 pm - October 30 @ 11:59 pm

Capturing the Spirit of Oakland Halloween tours are a favorite autumn tradition in Atlanta, selling out every year in July. The event returns for its 16th year, offering two weekends of history and delight from October 20 through October 30.

Designed to enlighten rather than frighten, Capturing the Spirit of Oakland tours bring to life the stories of some of the cemetery’s notable and notorious residents and allow visitors to experience Oakland Cemetery after dark. A costumed docent guides you through the cemetery’s beautifully lit Victorian Gardens where you’ll meet some of Oakland’s fascinating residents and hear their tales. The evening also includes musical performances, craft beer and cocktails, and an Oakland gift shop. Guests are encouraged to arrive in costume to set the mood.

Capturing the Spirit is Here! Here’s What You Should Know:

  • Your ticket time is the time you will be admitted into Oakland Cemetery. Once inside, you’ll have time to get a drink, use the restroom, and enjoy the entertainment before your tour begins.
  • Capturing the Spirit of Oakland tours last approximately 75 minutes and depart every 15 minutes. The tour route is approximately one mile. Please anticipate that your experience in the cemetery will last at least two hours.
  • Capturing the Spirit of Oakland is a rain or shine event. No refunds will be issued.
  • Limited street parking will be available for the event, so we encourage visitors to use MARTA or to ride-share.  Our address is 248 Oakland Avenue SE 30312.
