Description

Mount Holly's Annual Spring Picnic Returns!

Come to a family-friendly fundraiser for the beautiful historic cemetery in the heart of downtown Little Rock.

The cemetery was donated to the city in 1843 but has grave sites that date much earlier. Its serene beauty adds to the fascinating tales its denizens have to tell.

Spend time exploring the cemetery's iconic graves with tour guides from Parkview High School, enjoy Celtic-Ozark music by Lark in the Morning, and watch Parkview High School drama students in period costume reenact tales from the lives of Mount Holly's famous residents.

Costumed Re-enactors

Bid on works by local artists, gift packages, and special parties hosted by friends of Mount Holly Cemetery at the picnic's silent auction.

Appetizers and a box supper will be served, accompanied by lemonade and water. Mount Holly is grateful to Judy Waller Breece of Hillcrest Liquor and Fine Wine for making wine available for us, too!

FAQ

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

The main gates on Broadway will be closed and there is no parking on Broadway. Please park on 13th Street or around the corner and enter the cemetery from the 13th Street entrance, midway down the block.

Is there handicapped access?

The terrain in the cemetery is unpaved and uneven. We invite everyone to come, but if you have mobility challenges, please allow extra time for moving around.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

Bring a picnic blanket, a folding chair, and your checkbook or credit card to pay for your auction wins.

What if it rains?

The show must go on! If it rains, we will hold the picnic in the Fellowship Hall at Trinity Cathedral, which is located at 310 W 17th Street. (Many thanks to the Episcopal Archdiocese for its generosity.)
