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.
Some events at Oakland Cemetery are FREE to attend, while others are ticketed events with a fee.
The cemetery grounds themselves are always free to visit and open to the public daily from dawn to dusk.
You can also find a full calendar of events at Oakland Cemetery’s website.
Parking is available in a lot outside the front gate and on the street along Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive and Oakland Avenue.
Oakland Cemetery is located in Southeast Atlanta, near the Grant Park neighborhood.
