A full list of performers is below, along with  links to their websites and social media if you would like to learn more.

Important Rules

We want to make sure the evening is fun and safe for everyone:

  • The Cemetery’s terrain is hilly and uneven, be sure to wear appropriate footwear. 
  • It’s dark here at night, a flashlight would be helpful in finding your way (but be mindful not to shine light in anyone’s eyes).
  • Stay on the lit paths and do not wander away from event routes. Use this map or ask a staffer for directions. 
  • Do not lean or sit on any gravestones or monuments.
  • Please be respectful of others—no yelling, running, or horseplay.
  • No outside alcohol is permitted. It will be confiscated before entry.
