Goats and Hood Cemetery - Atlas Obscura Event

Thanks to its madly fun partnership with the Philly Goat Project, the Hood Cemetery is a featured event of Atlas Obscura, which bills itself as "the definitive guide to the world's hidden wonders."


Hood Cemetery is definitely hidden most of the time, and definitely a wonder, but the visiting goats of the Philly Goat Project (https://www.phillygoatproject.org/) bring magic.


Tickets offered through Atlas Obscura (details and link to tickets at https://www.atlasobscura.com/events/goats-in-the-hood) are $12/adult and $6/child, but identify yourself as a Hood Neighbor, and come on in for what feels right to you.


Originally dedicated in 1692 as “the Lower Burial Ground,” Lower Hood Cemetery was Philadelphia's first non-sectarian cemetery.  Now it is a Germantown green space, packed with history. In addition to learning about some of the hundreds of Germantown residents who are buried there, you'll meet goats Ivy, Anthony, Oliver, Oonagh, Bebito, Annie, Teddy and Ray.


Saturday, April 6 from noon to 3, tours on the hour.
