The Patch Works is an official Community Partner at Oakland Cemetery’s Annual Sunday in the Park!
Back before cities built public parks, people would bring a picnic basket and some musical instruments (and maybe a few adult libations) to the local cemetery and revere the dead by celebrating life in what was often one of the only patches of public space in town.
The cemetery’s FREE annual Sunday in the Park event, now in its 41st year, hails from this tradition. On September 29, explore how the Cemetery, surrounding neighborhoods, and the city have changed over time and celebrate the local communities that make Oakland what it is today.
Admission to Sunday in the Park is completely FREE. All donations received during the event will be put towards Historic Oakland Foundation’s mission to preserve, restore, enhance, and share Oakland Cemetery.
