Día de los Muertos Festival

Nov 4, 2017

Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday traditionally observed on Nov. 1 and 2. A holiday with ancient roots combining Mexican indigenous customs and European traditions, Día de los Muertos is a lighthearted and joyful tribute to the memory of family and friends who have passed away. Families celebrate by creating ofrendas (offerings) – elaborate displays commemorating loved ones – decorating sugar skulls and more.


Bring your family and friends to celebrate this fun and colorful tradition. Día de los Muertos costumes are encouraged.
