Spring Scramble Scavenger Hunt
May 8 - May 31
Gather a group of friends or family for a day of cemetery sleuthing on this self-guided scavenger hunt throughout historic Oakland Cemetery!
Through May 31, purchase your printable Spring Scramble packet online (one per team), download, print, and follow all-new cryptic clues to solve riddles. No reservations are required to participate.
Choose from three different packets, organized by degree of cemetery riddle difficulty:
- Easy: Kid-friendly riddles and perfect for families (expected hunt time:1 hour)
- Medium: Challenging, but not impossible to solve, riddles (Expected hunt time: 1.5-2 hours)
- Deadly: Try it if you dare (Expected hunt time: 2-3 hours)
Each team that purchases a packet will be entered into a drawing for prizes. Prizes include tour tickets, memberships, Museum Store gift cards, and more. Winners will be notified by email.
The Spring Scramble packet ($25 plus tax) includes one self-guided tour map (a $5 value) that can be used on return visits.
All proceeds from the Spring Scramble benefit Historic Oakland Foundation’s mission to preserve, restore, enhance, and share Oakland Cemetery.
