Historic Oakland Foundation invites you to celebrate the approach of fall with us at these September and October events.
Sunday in the Park returns for its 43rd year from September 21 through September 27. We’ve expanded the beloved fall festival into a week-long event. Help us celebrate all things Oakland with this year’s hybrid virtual/in-person format. Virtual activities include trivia, a costume contest and more. On Sunday, September 27, grab some takeout from your favorite local restaurant and join us for a picnic on Oakland’s grounds and for some on-site activities: small-group cemetery tours, an Oakland Cemetery pop-up shop, and musicians busking throughout the cemetery. Learn more at www.oaklandcemetery.com/sip.
Shop a great selection of interesting and hard-to-find plants at Historic Oakland Foundation’s low-contact Fall Plant Sale! The sale will take place at Oakland Cemetery’s Beaumont Allen Greenhouse on Saturday, September 26 with a special members-only presale on September 25. Shopping is by reservation; to learn more and reserve your spot, go to www.oaklandcemetery.com/plantsale.
Our Run Like Hell 5K, a neighborhood favorite, is also going virtual this year. Register now and run any time from September 27 and October 11. All proceeds will support Historic Oakland Foundation. Learn more at www.oaklandcemetery.com/rlh.
