Description:

*Please note that this begins at at the MAH, and the procession closes at Evergreen Cemetery (across from Harvey West Park)

We remember our dead loved ones as larger than life. Let’s celebrate that with a Día de los Muertos festival bigger than anything the MAH has done in the past. That means the festival is so big we split it into two halves AND have teamed up with Vive Oaxaca to make this happen: we’ll start at the museum with facepainting and dance, and move on to Evergreen Cemetery for music, delicious food, and an outdoor altar exhibition created by local community members.

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS AT THE MAH: 2:00-3:30: Facepainting, tissue paper flower crafting + more art activities (more info coming soon) 2:30-3:30: Dance performances 3:45-4:00: Gather in Abbott Square to proceed to Evergreen Cemetery

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS AT EVERGREEN CEMETERY: 4:30-6:00: Explore an outdoor altar installation connecting those buried in Evergreen with current active community members, groups and local social issues
