Sunday in the Park ft. Tunes from the Tombs

September 26 @ 12:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Sunday in the Park returns for its 43rd year on Sunday, September 26, celebrating our community and all things Oakland. This year’s event also hosts our annual Tunes from the Tombs music festival!

Enjoy the sunset over the Atlanta skyline as the music flows from Oakland’s North Public Grounds. Headlining this year’s Tunes from the Tombs music festival are The Original Wailers and Jupiter Coyote. You’ll also enjoy pop-up performances throughout the day.

Just as the Victorians brought blankets and musical instruments to picnic in cemeteries and celebrate life, we encourage you to join in on the fun, listen to music, and enjoy Oakland. Along with the music, attendees will enjoy tours, craft beer and alcoholic beverages, an artist market and Museum Store pop-up shop, a fabulous line-up of food trucks, a vendor market, and more.
