The first Sunday in October, Atlanta’s Historic Oakland Cemetery reconnects with its Victorian roots with Sunday in the Park, the most unique fall festival in the South. Many come dressed in Victorian finery harkening back to Oakland’s founding 163 years ago as a garden cemetery for the Victorian street festival presented by Historic Oakland Foundation on Sunday Oct.6 from noon – 6:00pm. Now in its 34th year, Sunday in the Park draws thousands of visitors to one of the most historically and architecturally significant cemeteries in the United States. The 48-acre cemetery features meticulously landscaped gardens and burial sites, old growth trees, fully restored mausoleums, a Jewish section, an African-American section, the graves of Civil War soldiers and historical monuments. Set among all this during Sunday in the Park are musicians, artists, food, spirits and much more. Sunday in the Park features an artists’ market, living history demonstrations, and storytellers.
