Day of the Dead
Nov 3, 2017 - Nov 19, 2017
Pirate has hosted a neighborhood party and artistic celebration honoring Dia de los Muertos for three decades, becoming a Denver tradition. This family-friendly event features Day of the Dead inspired art and handmade altars from local residents, plus Aztec dancers, piñatas, drinks, and more. There will a candlelight procession from the gallery to honor the dead.
Día de los Muertos is a festive time to honor deceased relatives, satirize the living, and entice the spirits to visit with flower-decked altars and offerings of food. Día de los Muertos, is considered a day of cheerful celebration rather than one of mourning.
This year the show opens November 3rd and runs until the 19th. The big celebration takes place on the evening of Friday November 3 from 5 -10 PM. There will be Aztec dancers at 6 PM, followed by the kids’ piñata at 7 PM, the procession at 8 PM, and the adult piñata at 9 PM.
