Soul Strolls 2020

By Historic Congressional Cemetery (other events)

4 Dates Through Oct 24, 2020

Trespass into the past and discover the secrets of some of Congressional Cemetery’s “residents.” Soul Strolls, the Cemetery’s annual twilight tours, explore the stories of individuals buried here through guided tours and costumed interpreters. Experience the history of this hallowed ground exactly the way it should be experienced in October – in twilight and darkness, happening upon vignettes and individuals under the guidance of one of our “Dozen Decent Docents.”

Soul Strolls take place over four nights, October 16-17 and October 23-24. Hour-long tours depart every 15 minutes between 6 and 10 pm.

Once your tour is over, you will be asked to continue out of the Cemetery to make room for the next tour group - capacity is limited due to COVID-19 regulations for the District of Columbia. 

Please Note: The Cemetery is unable to offer refunds or tour time changes, so please keep this in mind when purchasing tickets.

WE ARE NOT HAVING A VIP AREA THIS YEAR because we are not encouraging people to socialize in the Cemetery after the tour has concluded. You can continue with your group to one of the local restaurants or bars to enjoy the rest of your evening. Thank you for your understanding as we try to comply with the COVID-19 restrictions in place for Washington, DC. 

There may be a limited number of General Admission tickets available on-site only on the night-of the event on a first-come, first-served basis, if the tour times are not already sold out. These tickets are $40. These tickets will be limited to group availability. Groups will NOT exceed 25 people. 

Comfortable shoes are encouraged, as are flashlights. Tours will not stay on the paths, so please be ready for uneven terrain.

This event is rain or shine.
