SAVE THE CEMETERY

An event unlike any other, “A Celebration at Sunnyside” is a fundraising event that will bring together craft breweries, cider and wine makers, along with local food, coffee, and kombucha makers while attendees enjoy a variety of merchants, including macabre artists, vintage collectible purveyors, morticians, as well as local historians, authors and musicians.

Why a craft libation and art/collectibles/music festival in a Cemetery?  

Sunnyside Cemetery is the second oldest cemetery in Long Beach (as well as one of the oldest in California) and a historical landmark that was founded in 1906 and survives financially mostly on the endowment funds from the 16,300 people who are buried within.

Because there is very little space left available for future funerals, the cemetery spends more money on upkeep than they are able to bring in, and our goal is to bring awareness to such an important part of Long Beach’s history and to those who are forever interred.
