Save our Cemeteries & Ann Rice's Vampire Lestat Fan Club - Host Karstendiek Family Tomb Reception

October 27, 2016
  • Location: Lafayette Cemetery
  • Address: 1539 Jackson Avenue, New Orleans, LA
  • Times: 5:30 pm
  • Phone: 504-525-3377
  • Visit Website

Save Our Cemeteries is proud to offer an exclusive evening reception at historic Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 in partnership with Anne Rice's Vampire Lestat Fan Club on Thursday, October 27th, 2016 at 5:30pm to celebrate the restoration of the Karstendiek family tomb.

The Karstendiek family tomb is also known as the "Vampire Lestat" tomb because of the inspiration famed author Anne Rice drew from the tomb's unique attributes and its striking resemblance to the tomb featured in the movie adaptation of Interview with the Vampire.

The Karstendiek family tomb is one of only 16 cast-iron tombs in Orleans Parish, and needs extensive repairs. Proceeds from the event will be earmarked for the restoration of the tomb.

Patrons will participate in a Second Line led by Skinz N Bonez into the cemetery. A brief "twilight tour" of the cemetery is included, and light refreshments and red wine will be served to celebrate and support the full restoration of this historic landmark.
