Capturing the Spirit Halloween Tour Member Presale

June 30, 2019 - July 14, 2019

What is Capturing the Spirit?

Designed to enlighten rather than frighten, our popular Capturing the Spirit tours bring to life the stories of some of the cemetery’s notable 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 most notable residents. The evening also includes musical performances, and guests are encouraged to arrive in costume to set the mood.

This years’ Capturing the Spirit tours will take place the evenings of the following dates:

  • October 17
  • October 18
  • October 19
  • October 20
  • October 24
  • October 25
  • October 26
  • October 27

New this Year!
Enjoy an exclusive, one-of-a-kind Capturing the Spirit of Oakland VIP experience on Monday, October 21.

Capturing the Spirit VIP ticket holders will enjoy a three-course meal including drinks at an exciting new nearby restaurant, The Harp. After dinner, a costumed guide will join VIP guests at the restaurant and accompany them to Oakland’s gates, where they will have the cemetery to themselves after-dark as they enjoy a private Capturing the Spirit Halloween tour experience.

Member Presale Information

Tickets go on sale to our wonderful members on July 1, two weeks before they go on sale to the public. Last year all Capturing the Spirit tours sold out about a week after sales opened to the public on July 15, so we highly encourage you to take advantage of this member benefit.
