Oakland Cemetery is not just a final resting place for historic figures from Atlanta’s past — it’s also one of the largest public green spaces in Atlanta. That’s why Oakland’s gardens and park-like 48 acres are often the setting for fall festivals and other outdoor autumn events, many of them free and family-friendly.
The cemetery grounds themselves are free to visit and open to the public daily from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
You can also find a full calendar of events at Oakland Cemetery’s website.
Oakland Cemetery is located in Southeast Atlanta, near the Grant Park neighborhood.
