6. A Historic Halloween

There is no other holiday that brings to mind a cemetery more than the high holiday of Halloween. This year, Green-Wood is will host a variety of tours and events throughout the fall months. On October 20th, the cemetery hosted what can only be described as part movie, part concert, and part immersive theater. At Nightfall, visitors were guided by the light of thousands of flickering candles as they wandered along the cemetery’s paths to see musicians, images, performance artists, and storytellers. The creative team behind this one-of-a-kind event includes Unison Media, Rooftop Films, Morbid Anatomy, and Bindlestiff Family Cirkus. You can see all of the cemetery’s upcoming events, including historic trolley tours and a full-moon walk, on their website.
