Located in the Front Garden
As the capstone to a month of programming in celebration of this time-honored Mexican tradition, the Center’s annual Altar-Lighting ceremony takes place every November 1 or 2 on our front lawn.
Our 12’ public altar, constructed by local sculptor Jim Callahan, has ample room for photos and other items that honor lost loved ones, and every year we invite community members to contribute their mementoes to the ofrenda in a shared celebration of those who have passed on.
Every October, the Center offers a variety of programs and other activities in conjunction with Día de los Muertos, inviting our community to join us in exploring the cultural practices and traditions surrounding this holiday. Please check our event calendar [link] for more information about upcoming Día de los Muertos programming and events.
There are lots of ways to get involved in our annual Día de los Muertos programming, including volunteering, in-kind or financial contributions, and sponsorships.
