Sunday in the Park hails from the tradition of revering the dead by celebrating life! Back before cities built public parks, average people would bring a picnic basket, musical instruments, and maybe a few adult libations to the local cemetery, which was often one of the only patches of public space in town.
All proceeds from Sunday in the Park benefit Historic Oakland Foundation’s mission to preserve, restore, enhance, and share Oakland Cemetery.
