The holidays are a great time to experience the charm and magic of Oakland. Whether you have guests coming in from out of town or just need to stretch your legs after too much turkey, the holiday season at Oakland has plenty of fun activities to offer. On November 19 the Bell Tower Boutique will host over a dozen artisans and craftspeople selling their wares in our newly renovated Bell Tower. Shop everything from pottery to baked goods to hand-forged cutlery and find something for anyone and everyone on your holiday shopping list.
The annual wreath sale runs from November 7 to December 10. Deck your halls with fresh and fragrant Fraser fir wreaths and Oakland-grown greenery available for order online. Then pick up your wreath and greenery at Oakland on the date of your choosing.
Our Holiday Hunt scavenger hunt is fun for the whole family and kicks off on November 20, just in time for a fun Thanksgiving family activity. Purchase the digital packet online, download, print, and explore Oakland as your try to solve wintry riddles.
Finally, our annual Victorian Holiday event at Oakland happens December 3 and 4 from 10:00am to 4:00pm. This free family event will feature photos with Saint Nick, mini-tours of the cemetery, crafts for kids, a holiday-themed gift shop, seasonally decorated mausolea and more. Wreaths will also be available for purchase at Victorian Holiday. More information on all of these events can be found at www.oaklandcemetery.com.All proceeds benefit efforts to restore, preserve, enhance, and share Oakland Cemetery with all of Atlanta.
