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 October 10 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 September 12.
We will have a rotating slate of individuals from the local death positive community to moderate the event. 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.
