27th Annual Oakwood Cemetery Walk

27th Annual Oakwood Cemetery Walk

The Waukegan Park District and the Waukegan Historical Society are hosting the 27th Annual Oakwood Cemetery Walk on Saturday, September 17, 2022 from 12pm to 4pm at Oakwood Cemetery. The Oakwood Cemetery Walk is an annual “living history” event showcasing the rich history of Waukegan using costumed actors to portray local historic figures with connections to the cemetery and Waukegan.

The theme of the 27th Annual Oakwood Cemetery Walk is “What Made the City Work,” including stories of the people who helped shaped the growth of our town with both common and uncommon jobs.

Because there is no public parking at Oakwood Cemetery, attendees must meet at Lilac Cottage in Bowen Park, located at 1911 N. Sheridan Road. Buses will depart from Lilac Cottage to Oakwood Cemetery at 12pm, 12:30pm, 1pm, 1:30pm, 2pm, and 2:30pm. The last tour will begin at approximately 2:45pm.
