Please join us in honoring our passed loved ones and ancestors in our annual Dia de los Muertos celebration.

A number of hands-on activities for the whole family will be provided, including:

Aztec Dance Troupe Performance
Sugar Skull Decorating
Facepainting
Weird and Wacky Science
Live Caribbean Music for Children
Story-telling
Re-use Costume Making
and much more!

In addition, a community altar by artist and youth activist Emma Gomez will pay tribute to community members and workers that have passed on. Fittingly, the altar will also recognize those that have sacrificed their health and lives for our well-being and for food justice.

Community members are invited to bring photos and belongings to commemorate the deceased and add to the community altar. Offerings of fruits, food items, and cards are also welcomed.

Cost: Free
This event is wheelchair accessible.
