Love Stories of Oakland

February 15 @ 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Love never dies at Oakland Cemetery! Grab your Valentine and get to Oakland Cemetery for a unique outdoor date – Love Stories of Oakland is back by popular demand! Enjoy more than 20 tour stops through Oakland’s Victorian garden cemetery as we recount the loves, lives, and losses of Atlantans of days past. Love Stories of Oakland also examines the symbolism of love and devotion found on monuments, headstones, and mausoleums throughout the grounds.

The 75-minute long tour will start at 3:30, 3:45, 4:00, 5:00, 5:15, and 5:30. Arrive at Oakland’s Bell Tower at least 15 minutes before the start of your tour to check in. Check out the Museum Shop for plenty of Valentine-themed gifts. All Love Stories ticket holders will receive a 10 percent discount in the Museum Shop!

Make it a date to remember with a post-tour dinner at Agave and Petit Chou, our community partners. See details below. Reservations are highly encouraged.

The 4:00 Love Stories tour will feature a special accessible route through Oakland Cemetery. Perfect for visitors with mobility needs, the tour route will take flat and smooth pathways that are accessible for wheelchairs and strollers. We will also have three open golf cart seats available on a first-come, first-served basis for those with mobility issues. Please email Marcy Breffle at mbreffle@oaklandcemetery.com to reserve your seat.

Parking: Parking inside the cemetery is limited, so please consider parking in the lot outside of Oakland’s front gate or on surrounding side streets.
