About the event

Explore Sturgis History with a walking tour through Oak Lawn Cemetery. Follow your guide between 12 different graves, where costumed performers will deliver accounts of the lives of the people buried there. Hear from some of the 'Outliers' in Sturgis's past: those rose above, were cast out, or otherwise lived outside of the mainstream.  Two tour groups of 20 people each depart every half hour. Tours last approximately one hour. This event is presented by Sturgis Historical Society, in collaboration with the Sturges-Young Center for the Arts and the Sturgis Civic Players. Sponsored by Sturgis Bank. Tours are OUTDOORS, please dress appropriately. In case of inclement weather, the scheduled tours will be conducted the following day. Refund requests will be considered on a case by case basis in the event of rescheduling.

TIPPING of performers is welcomed and supports the Sturgis Civic Players. Gratuities can be given to tour guides at the conclusion of the tour.
