Elmwood Cemetery announces the return of the Soul of the City Event & Film this October.

The Soul of the City is an event that showcases the stories of eight individuals buried in the cemetery. These “residents” are chosen for their accomplishments and contributions to Memphis history.

This October, you can help bring this event to life.

We've changed things up, too, so we can have more fun.

What was a two-day event now includes a film.

Friday, October 8th and 9th: tours of the cemetery, live and in-person.

Friday, October 15th: a special on-site Cemetery Cinema, featuring the filmed Soul of the City actors.

You can make this event a reality by sponsoring the Soul of the City Event & Film! There are more options than ever before for sponsorship. Your generosity and commitment to the preservation of historic Elmwood Cemetery will entertain, enlighten, and impress.

We hope you will choose from the following, and if you don't see just the right thing, please contact Kim Bearden at or 901-774-3212 to create a sponsorship package to fit your needs.
