Historic Congressional Cemetery @ 1801 E St SE, Washington, DC 20003
from til ,
Trespass into the past and discover the secrets of some of Congressional Cemetery s residents.
Soul Strolls, the Cemetery s annual twilight tours, explore the stories of individuals buried here through guided tours and costumed interpreters. Experience the history of this hallowed ground exactly the way it should be experienced in October in twilight and darkness, happening upon vignettes and individuals under the guidance of one of our Dozen Decent Docents.
Soul Strolls take place over four nights, October 20th and 21st and October 27th and 28th. Hour-long tours depart every 15 minutes between 7 and 10 pm for our Friday tours, and 6 and 10 pm for our Saturday tours. Beer, wine, and cider will be for sale at our cash bar in the Chapel. Adult tickets are $22; children 12 and under are $12. Attendees can arrive early to grab a glass of wine, browse our HCC gift shop, and listen to music while waiting for tours to depart. This year, we are excited to offer a VIP option to a select group of visitors. Our Public Vault will be transformed into a Prohibition-era speakeasy generously sponsored by Green Hat Gin.
