The start of summer comes with the thrill of a roller coaster ride – it smells like sea and sunscreen, sounds like a hot grill, and feels like a carnival. Our debut gathering of the Secret Mausoleum Club pays homage to the start of summer and the visionaries of amusements found within Green-Wood Cemetery’s walls.
A peaceful hush falls over Green-Wood’s grounds each night as the gates close. It is in that near-darkness when the members of the Secret Mausoleum Club congregate; as centuries-old monuments stand guard over those laid to permanently rest within. Following the success of the annual Into The Veil festival, Atlas Obscura and Green-Wood Cemetery are collaborating this year to present The Secret Mausoleum Club, opening Green-Wood’s historic gates and selected mausoleums for an extraordinary series of intimate after-hours immersive experiences.
Each exclusive evening has been specially curated to celebrate legends, legacies, and lore, and each meeting will feature a unique mausoleum with programming inspired by the surroundings. Clues shared before each event will help guests decipher the night’s theme. Take in an inspiring performance and a historic persona or two – an evening of surprising discoveries awaits.
