Bellefontaine Cemetery and Arboretum

Sips, Souls, and Strolls: Steamship History We are excited to announce the return of our popular Sips, Souls, and Strolls events! Enjoy a pleasant evening of light refreshments, beautiful surroundings, and a leisurely tour at Bellefontaine Cemetery and Arboretum. From 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. on May 13, 21, and 27, 2022, you can explore Steamboat life. Captains, pilots, owners, and some unfortunate souls lost in a steamboat accident make up our tour.

Wine, beer, soft drinks, and light appetizers will be served. Walking terrain is mild with a mixture of hard and soft surfaces. Please wear appropriate outdoor walking attire. This is a rain or shine event except in the case of extreme lightning. Space is limited and reservations are required. Purchase your tickets today!
