About this Event

We made necessary changes this year to comply with County and City health and safety regulations. Please read this carefully and contact us at 607-734-4167 if you have further questions!


This year ticket reservations are purchased online only.

There will be six tours of 25 people at Woodlawn each evening. Tours are scheduled every half hour from 6 pm – 8:30 pm. All guests must check in with staff at Woodlawn’s Main Gate on Walnut Street and will be allowed to enter no sooner than ten minutes before their scheduled tour time.


No buses this year. Guests will meet us at Woodlawn. Parking for the event is available nearby. Look for parking guides with safety vests and flashlights on Walnut Street or find your own. Please drive safely.


All guests are required to wear masks covering their nose and mouth and stay with their ticketed group. Groups will be escorted through the cemetery by guides. Please pay attention to the guides, they are there to help. We are limiting group numbers. Note the actors will not have masks but will be set apart from the audience. Expect to walk a little over a mile in low-light conditions, this includes parking.
