Charlotte’s History Comes Alive with “Voices From The Past” Uptown Cemetery Event


Voices From The Past is returning in 2023 as a part of Charlotte SHOUT! Come take a “spirited stroll” through Charlotte’s historic cemeteries and interact with over 20 portrayers as they tell the stories of the men and women who helped make Charlotte what it is today.

The event will feature food trucks, live music from the Charlotte Folk Society, and complimentary golf cart rides from Carolina Golf Cars for our visitors that may have difficulty walking around the cemetery. The event will also feature the Charlotte Fire Department’s restored Neptune fire pump truck, circa 1860 and cars from the Queen City Model A Club.

This event is put on by the Historic Elmwood/Pinewood Cemetery Inc. It is free and open to the public. It is both family-friendly and pet-friendly. Whether you are a native of Charlotte or new to the city, this is a fun event for all to learn more about our history while helping to preserve it.
