Día de los Muertos Celebration

DATE: Nov. 2 - 3, 2019
TIME: 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
PRICE: Included with membership or paid Garden admission


La Procesión each day 5 – 6 p.m.
Celebrate the tradition of Día de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, with a two-day festival filled with music, dance and storytelling. Children will love the crafts and face painting, and the whole family will enjoy the Mercado filled with art, jewelry and other wares. Each day ends with La Procesión, a procession through the Garden by all the performers and audience members, concluding with a traditional burning of penās. La Procesión represents the ancient tradition of marching as a community to burial sites in order to honor those who have passed.

  • El Mercado (10 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.): Visit with local and international artists and vendors at the Garden’s Mercado. From paintings, sculptures and photographs to traditional pastries–discover elements of the American Southwest, Mexico, Latin America and beyond.
  • Ofrenda Exhibit: Ofrenda, or Offering, is part of the traditional Mexican celebration of Día de los Muertos. The altars are original pieces specifically created for this celebration by local artists.

Programming is subject to change.
