Voices From The Past is returning in 2024! Come take a "spirited stroll" through Charlotte’s historic cemeteries and interact with over 20 portrayers as they tell the stories of the men and women who helped make Charlotte what it is today.
The event will feature food trucks, live music from the Charlotte Folk Society, and complimentary golf cart rides from Carolina Golf Cars for our visitors who may have difficulty walking around the cemetery.
This is a ticketed event to raise funds for the nonprofit Historic Elmwood Pinewood Inc. It is both family-friendly and pet-friendly. Whether you are a native of Charlotte or new to the city, this is a fun event for all to learn more about our history while helping to preserve it.
WHEN: Saturday, April 6th from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m.
WHERE: Historic Elmwood/Pinewood Cemetery (700 W. 6th St.) and Old Settlers’ Cemetery (200 W 5th St.)
TICKETS: Tickets are on sale now for $10. Children under 12 are free. Learn more and purchase tickets by visiting
About the Historic Elmwood Pinewood, Inc (HEPI): HEPI is a 501(3) non-profit dedicated to preserving, restoring, enhancing, and sharing the original historic and park-like atmosphere of Elmwood Pinewood, and Settler’s Cemeteries.

Before there was a Department of Parks and Recreation, cemeteries were purposely designed for dual-use. Easter and Halloween parades were conducted in Elmwood. Families had picnics and children played in the green space. We at HEPI believe that we, in concert with the City, can provide a safe, friendly, and serene environment for those interred, those visiting loved ones, and those wanting to learn about our past or just take a break from the hubbub.
