Elmwood Cemetery's residents return for two evenings of history and storytelling this October during the Raymond James Soul of the City Tour! This October 13th and 14th, we're celebrating the 20th anniversary of this acclaimed event.

Joining us for two evenings will be crowd-favorite characters, like spies, outlaws, political bosses, religious figures, ne'er-do-wells, galivants, and more!

But, to make it happen, Elmwood Cemetery needs your support. Please sponsor this event and make 2023 the best Soul of the City Tour ever. Sponsorship levels are listed below.
