The Historic Oakland Foundation has been presenting Sunday in the Park at Oakland Cemetery for 34 years. the Victorian Street Festival began in 1979. It offers an artists market, food from restaurants like Six Feet Under and The Varsity, live music and living history demonstrations, plus the rare opportunity to enter some of the beautiful mausoleums! There will also be carriage and walking tours of the cemetery. The foliage and fall plants will add to the special nature of the event as well. Oakland is truly beautiful and a fine place for the living as well as the dead.
The suggested donation for this event is $5 and parking is $5. Children under 3 are free
I can't think of a better way to spend an autumn afternoon. Don't forget to visit the gift shop for unique and wonderful gift ideas.
