Evergreen Cemetery Walk

The 2023 Evergreen Cemetery Walk will be held in-person on September 30 and October 1, and October 7-8 with performances at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. each day. The Virtual Evergreen Cemetery Walk will be available to view on YouTube at a date to be announced later.

The Cemetery Walk is a nationally-recognized, award-winning annual event that brings the voices of McLean County’s history to life.

Costumed actors portray people from McLean County’s past on the grounds of Evergreen Memorial Cemetery. Their stories illustrate the impact the people of McLean County have had on history—locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally. Put on your walking shoes and bring your family to participate in this fascinating, outdoor theatrical program.

This event serves about 3,500 people, most of whom are students. It is a collaboration between the McLean County Museum of History, Illinois Voices Theatre, and Evergreen Memorial Cemetery.

Ticket sales will begin on Tuesday, September 5 at 9:00 a.m. They will be available for purchase online by visiting www.mchistory.org, or by visiting the Museum’s Cruisin’ with Lincoln on 66 Visitors Center and Gift Shop and at Evergreen Memorial Cemetery.
