This year is our 21st Annual Día de los Muertos Festival! Each year, guests are invited to create altars to remember and honor their loved ones in a special area outside of the Center’s museum. While these altars are the focus of the festival, the event will also feature live music, face painting, sugar skull decorating, and other celebratory activities. Food and crafts will be available for purchase.
The Festival also features México…Vive Su Folklor, a special production by Tierra Caliente Academy of Arts that brings the history of Mexico to life through teatro, ballet folklórico, and live folk music. Check back soon for tickets to this fabulous show!
The festival begins at 6:00 pm and is free and open to the public. Altar space will not be available until 6:00 pm, but early arrival is strongly recommended. Guests will not need a ticket to enjoy the festival, but you can RSVP below to stay informed about this and other free community events here at the Center!
