A Victorian Holiday At Oakland Cemetery says
Deck the mausoleums with boughs of holly! On Saturday, Dec. 5 from noon to 4 p.m., Historic Oakland Foundation hosts A Victorian Holiday at Oakland Cemetery, a unique seasonal celebration that is sure to become a beloved holiday tradition!

Indulge in the seasonal spirit by enjoying holiday festivities at Oakland’s Bell Tower. Warm up with a cup of hot cocoa or wassail while listening to holiday carols. Settle down for a reading of The Night Before Christmas or join Oakland’s youngest visitors in learning the art of the Victorian ornament. Don’t forget to get a photo with jolly Saint Nick!

All visitors will enjoy a 10 percent discount on holiday items in Oakland’s Visitors Center and Museum Shop. Give your loved ones a gift that can be enjoyed all year long – a Historic Oakland Foundation membership!

Be sure to purchase one of our festive handcrafted balsam wreaths to bring a piece of Oakland home for the holidays.
