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
Over the past months, we have all seen media coverage on negotiations between the city and Sunnyside Cemetery. We are gratified by the Long Beach City Council’s unanimous vote on August 20th to accept ownership of the cemetery. With this vote, we feel confident that the significant history of Sunnyside will be preserved for years to come. We look forward to seeing you at our 24th Annual Historic Cemetery Tour and we look forward to the next chapter in Sunnyside’s story!
