Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)
Nov 2, 2018
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 made by students from area schools and handmade altars from local residents. There will also be a performance of Aztec ceremonies associated with the celebration by dancers from Denver’s own Azteca Arts Colorado. And of course piñatas, drinks, and more.
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.
The big celebration takes place on the evening of Friday November 2 from 5 -10 PM. This year the show opens October 26th and runs until November 11th.
