Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)

October 27 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Join us for our annual Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Celebration on  Saturday, October 27th at the historic Davis Cemetery grounds. This celebration is one of the last Mesoamerican indigenous influenced rituals, honoring mother earth and all ancestors. This celebration is part of an effort to create community, a sense of belonging, and global awareness of cultural richness in our multicultural society. The Dia de Los Muertos Celebration will include a variety of artists and performers, as well as a collective altar honoring all ancestors. These events are free and open to the public. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the public alter. Everyone is encouraged to bring chairs, blankets, and enjoy the day.

We are in need of donations of flowers, food, decorations. If you or your organization would like to make a monetary donation please contact Kristi Dvorak at cemcod@dcn.org

 

For more information or for your organization to display an altar or if you are a performer who would like to contribute please contact event co-coordinator Melissa Moreno at mmmorenophd@gmail.com or Cemetery Director Kristi Dvorak at cemetery@dcn.org
