Spring Grove's Event Update
Spring Grove Cemetery & Arboretum will host an abbreviated amount of events this summer and fall. We do hope you add Lantern Lighting (Sept 11) and the Car Show (Oct 10) to your calendar. After canceling last year, we are very excited for the return of these signature events. We are not offering any private or public tram tours at this time. Continue to check our website and Facebook page for the latest event updates.

Edible Plants Walking Tour (9/9/21)
We’ll step back into the earlier days when horticulture was focused more with food production than our current day obsession with ornamental side of plants. Learn and sample plants we now use in the landscape having edible fruit as we tour the grounds on a relaxing summer evening walking tour and gain an expanded appreciation for the woody plants in our landscape. We’ll see plants that are obvious food sources and others that are quite surprising in their quality.
Lantern Lighting Ceremony 2021 (9/11/21)
Spring Grove 16th Annual Lantern Lighting Event CANCELED. As a measure of public safety for those in attendance, we have made the heartbreaking decision to cancel our Annual Lantern Lighting event originally scheduled for Saturday, September 11, 2021. Spring Grove remains committed to helping families grieve and heal, however, given the current circumstances with the continual rise in COVID numbers, we feel that the risk of hosting a large event at this time is not prudent. Although this is an outdoor event, thousands of attendees in a relatively confined area of the cemetery is not an ideal situation. We look forward to welcoming our guests and the families that we serve each day to celebrate again with us in 2022 for our Annual Lantern Lighting Celebration.

Flags of Honor 2021 (11/7/21 - 11/13/21)
Historic Spring Grove Cemetery and Arboretum invites you to participate in our Tribute to our Veterans and Heroes of Public Service. We proudly welcome back our Flags of Honor Display. This tribute will honor ALL VETERANS, MILITARY PERSONNEL and HEROES OF PUBLIC SERVICE, those who serve to protect our communities every day. The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States realizes that duties performed in the fields of law enforcement and emergency services, whether carried out in public view with the ensuing public acclaim, or performed in ways which gain little public recognition, are both exemplary and of great value to the nation. 100 3’ x 5’ sponsored US flags will be placed along the roadways within the cemetery. You and your family have the opportunity to honor those who are close to your heart by sponsoring one or more of these flags for $25 each. All veterans and service personnel are eligible, whether living or deceased. There are also no restrictions as to where a deceased honoree is buried. Each sponsored flag will be identified by an acrylic plaque at the base of the flagpole. The plaque will contain the name of the honoree, any pertinent information about the honoree shared by the sponsor, and a photo of the honoree (if provided). After the flags are removed for storage, the laminated card will be available for sponsoring families to retrieve in the Customer Service Center of the cemetery the following week. A map depicting the location of each flag will be available in the Customer Service Center.
