Halloween Hauntings

  • Oak Hill Cemetery Brown Street Newburyport, MA 01950 (map)

View and download photos from our Halloween Hauntings photo booth here.

Celebrate Halloween among the gravestones and goblins of Oak Hill Cemetery in Newburyport.  The cemetery provides an apt backdrop for the evening’s activities, which will include hayride cemetery tours, costume contests, live music, and tarot readings.

Our spooky horse-drawn hayrides through the cemetery will introduce you to some of Oak Hill's historic dearly departed.  Outside the cemetery gates, Aly of Intuitive Tarot will be offering 10/15 minute tarot readings for $10/$15.  Attendees can have their pictures taken in our professional photo booth, and enter costume contests with cash prizes.

Throughout the evening, enjoy live music by Freevolt, one of Newburyport's favorite local bands.  This "roots rock americana jam reggae funk pop" group got its start in Newburyport and performs dynamic, high energy shows throughout New England and beyond.  The group released their newest album in May 2015, and its title song, "Once You Say" has been featured on over 45 radio stations worldwide.        

This event's co-sponsor, Newburyport Brewing Company, will be pouring their local libations for thirsty party-goers.  Your Halloween Hauntings ticket includes one free drink ticket; additional beverages can be purchased.  Nick's Pizza will also be available for purchase.  All on-site purchases are cash only.
