Oakland Cemetery comes alive again this spring with Illumine, its annual after-dark arts spring event. Wander through all-new displays set against the inspiring backdrop of Atlanta’s skyline.

Returning after cancellation due to COVID-19 in 2020, this year’s expanded event will focus on the cemetery’s newly restored historic African American Burial Grounds and Women’s Comfort Station, highlighting the lives of the men and women who created them, managed them, and whose stories they tell. You’ll also be able to meander through the history and beauty of Oakland’s beautiful springtime gardens near the main gate and on Bell Tower Ridge: the cemetery’s most mature Victorian gardens.
