The Cemetery Walk will be held at 6:00 p.m. on the evenings of September 9th, 10th and 11th, with the September 9th and 10th performances to be held outside at the Oconto Catholic Cemetery, 3024 N.

OCHS Cemetery Walk: Monday, September 9, Tuesday, September 10, and Wednesday, September 11, 2024, 6:00 p.m.

Six historic personages will be portrayed and their life stories will come alive.  Some of the individuals portrayed are well known in Oconto County history; others are lesser known and those attending will learn about various facets of their lives.

Tour-goers will be led in groups through the cemetery by guides for the outdoor walks.  Those attending the outdoor performances are urged to wear comfortable shoes as the tour requires an amount of walking, sometimes on uneven ground.  You may also wish to bring a flashlight and insect repellent.  The indoor performance is designed for people who may have difficulty walking in the cemetery; however, the indoor performance is open to everyone.

Tickets are $12 per person and will be sold at the Beyer Home and Carriage Museum through September 1st.  Please note that the Museum is closed on Tuesdays.  If any tickets remain unsold after September 1st, they will be available for sale at Roberts Hometown Hardware, 919 Main Street, Oconto.  In addition, remaining unsold tickets will be available for sale just prior to each evening’s performance.

There are a limited number of tickets for the performances and tickets sell out fast.  Complimentary refreshments will be served to tour-goers at the cemetery on the evenings of September 9th and 10th, and in the cafeteria of the Oconto High School following the performance on September 11th.  In the event of inclement weather on September 9th or 10th, the performances will be moved indoors to the Oconto High School Auditorium.
