40th Annual Day of the Dead Celebration

Muertos de la Risa, Juntos We Rise
The 40th Annual Day of the Dead Celebration

Rooted in Mexican tradition, Dia de Muertos serves as a joyous occasion to celebrate life and honor the memory of loved ones that have passed away.

Community + Tradition
Join us for the longest-running Dia de Muertos celebration in the city. We invite you to an evening of spectacle and ancestral remembrance. There will be face painting, art activities, performances, street-level ofrendas and a community procession. Bring your walking shoes, your muertos inspired attire, and/or your own mobile ofrenda— fill the neighborhood with joy and laughter.

Love our Community + Honor our ancestors
In a city that is sometimes too hostile, we emphasize support and solidarity of marginalized communities. To reach success they must rise above systematic challenges, violence and oppressive expectations. We are uniting communities and providing a space to honor the memory of our ancestors and friends gone too soon. Together we can create a brighter future for our communities and young people. Juntos we rise.
