Bonaventure Gothic After The Gates Lock! 

Great Options For You or Your Unique Group!

Event One: Bonaventure After Hours (Public)

Bonaventure’s Exclusive Event After Hours! – We Hold The Keys…

Bonaventure Cemetery’s exclusive engagement with the twilight & nightfall enchantment hours has returned!

An unparalleled evening event & the coolest way to indulge your Gothic poet side! We don’t want to boast, but if you’re not doing this event, you’re not doing the Number 1 event in Savannah. The old saying is, no visit to Savannah is complete without a visit to Bonaventure! And less than 1% of the population has ever seen it after the gates close for the night! You’re literally locked in the cemetery for 2 hours! And for the right taker, there’s no price you can put on the joy of that! Imagine having the serenity, stillness and quiet of the cemetery, uninterrupted by the living world? A photographer? Just look at our folder here for a sample of what you’ll be able to have bragging rights to!

Stories stretching from present day, all the way back to Bonaventure’s plantation beginnings in 1754! Ranging from the funny & uplifting, to macabre at its most morbid! Topic fare? Covering everything from Savannah’s role in “The DaVinci Code,” (oh you didn’t know?), to a hooch runner for Al Capone, a woman drowned by one man — her hubby put to death for the crime, and the bizarre love story that ended in one murder and one electric chair moment! Fans of “Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil?” This is where root doctor, Lady Minerva came to conjure for Jim Williams! Those are just the highlights! If we told you any more we’d have to…ummm…not let you attend! Perfect for friends, your social club, church group, non-profit or anyone looking to do something completely and truly different in Savannah!*
