Event Series Event Series: Death Cafe

As an active burial ground, Historic Congressional Cemetery is well acquainted with death. But just what is a Death Cafe?

Death Cafe is a global movement facilitating thoughts and discussion about the often taboo subject of death, It’s a intimate informal gathering to discuss death while eating cake and drinking tea. There is no agenda other than providing a safe space to have an open ended conversation.

Please join us for Historic Congressional Cemetery Death Cafes on April 11 from 6:00 PM- 7:30 PM in our historic chapel. Tickets are free and are available for reservation approximately one month prior to the event date on March 14.

We will have a rotating slate of individuals from the local death positive community to facilitate the event. On April 11 our facilitator will be Liz Gregg.

Complimentary refreshments will be served but we ask that you consider bringing a food or beverage item to share with the group. A $5 donation, to help cover event costs, is also welcome but not required. In addition, you do not have to use your real name to register, just a name you will recognize so we can check you in at the door. Should your plans change, let us know so we can allow others to participate.

Reserve a seat HERE for the April 11 Death Cafe (available on or near March 14)
