24th Annual Historical Cemetery Tour

October 26, 2019 9:00 am - 3:00 pm 1095 E. Willow Street, Long Beach, California 90807

Since 1995, the HSLB has conducted an annual living history tour at the city’s two oldest cemeteries. Located on Willow Street between Orange and California avenues, the Long Beach Municipal Cemetery and adjacent Sunnyside Cemetery are “home” to more than 20,000 past residents of the area.

The tour takes place the last Saturday of October and features graveside performances by actors who relate the life and demise of the person[s] lying at rest. The tour is family-friendly and appropriate for all ages. There is nothing scary about the vignettes or the location.

24th Annual Historical Cemetery Tour FAQs
We have recently seen media coverage on negotiations between the City of Long Beach and Sunnyside Cemetery, and we are aware that many are concerned about the issue. For the past 23 years, we’ve demonstrated the importance of cemeteries, and those buried in them, in the retelling of our city’s history to the public. With the support of both Sunnyside Cemetery and the city, we are proud to continue that tradition. The HSLB is supportive of discussions between the City and the cemetery and we maintain good working relationships with both. We hope this addresses any concerns you may have about this year’s event. We can’t wait to see you at our 24th Annual Historic Cemetery Tour!!
