Laurel Hill Cemetery takes on another aura as the sun sets and nighttime envelopes the grounds. Though the Cemetery is often open for evening tours and special events, the opportunity for a general visit and exploration is rare. Join us for our first Summer Open House where we will open the gates after-hours and invite you to simply enjoy the Cemetery grounds. Have a BYOB picnic, peruse our gift shop, take-in some night photography or simply walk around. Visitors can also view our special illumination display for veterans buried at Laurel Hill.
The Open House and Illumination will take place on Saturday, August 23 from 7:00pm to 10:00pm (with a prescheduled rain date of Saturday, August 30), with check-in at Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse entrance at 3822 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19132. Free parking is located in the lot across the street from the Gatehouse.
