The dead never really leave us. Across cultures and time, the persistent presence of departed loved ones is a matter beyond question, a vast circle of souls who live on in memory, perhaps even in spirit.
Join us for our fourth annual Dia de Los Muertos celebration on Saturday, October 27th. Admission
is FREE and there will be activities for the whole family, including art, storytelling, and cultural cuisine.
The festival centerpiece is a traditional ofrenda, a colorful shrine to which visitors can add their own mementos honoring those who’ve passed into time. The ofrenda will be open to the public throughout the week following the celebration. At the festival’s end, the notes and mementos will be burned in a ceremonial pyre offsite, signifying release and continuation of the spiritual journey.
Thank you to our sponsors Jennifer Saez and Susan Lorenz Buckley & Buckley Real Estate Inc, and for the in-kind donations from Safeway, Town & Country, and Blackbird Bakery.
