Sunday in the Park ft. Tunes from the Tombs

September 25, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Sunday in the Park returns for its 44th year on Sunday, September 25, celebrating our community and all things Oakland. This year’s event once again 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. Charleston-based indie band SUSTO will headline this year’s Tunes from the Tombs music festival and will be joined by Sailing to Denver, Sweet Auburn String Band, and Nate Helfrich. 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.

Sunday in the Park is a rain-or-shine event.
