Just as the Victorians brought blankets and musical instruments to picnic in cemeteries and celebrate life, the public is invited to Oakland Cemetery on September 24 to listen to music and enjoy a day at Oakland’s longest-running event.
This year’s Sunday in the Park event will once again host the annual Tunes from the Tombs music festival featuring headliners Fireside Collective and Jon Stickley Trio and local acts The Ain’t Sisters and Black Lion Reggae.
Along with live music, attendees will enjoy free tours, an artist and vendor market, craft beers and wine, the Oakland Museum Store pop-up shop, a fabulous line-up of food trucks, a historical costume contest, a children’s craft area, and more!
New this year is a Sunday in the Park VIP option! VIP guests will receive access to reserved seating area at the Tunes from the Tombs main stage and can cool off in the newly restored Bell Tower. Exclusive to VIP ticket holders, the Bell Tower VIP Lounge will have its own bar, air-conditioned seating, and permanent restroom facilities along with two balconies offering gorgeous cemetery and Atlanta skyline views.
Tickets for Sunday in the Park go on sale June 15. For information, visit www.oaklandcemetery.com/SIP.
