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 a multicultural society.
The festivities will include Danza by Kulpulli Tlayolotl, Marachi Puente, Escritores del Nuevo Sol poets, Zapato Viejo led by David Campos, Free Range Singers.
Traditional hot chocolate and pan dulce treats also will be provided. Guests can also purchase tamales and churros.
There will be a collective altar honoring all ancestors. This event is free and open to the public and everyone is welcome to contribute to the altar or create their own.
