Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican ancestry living in other places, especially the United States. It is acknowledged internationally in many other cultures. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey.
Acclaimed alternative Mexican folk band Las Cafeteras will bring the funky sounds of son jarocho and cumbia for a special Sunday concert.
After the concert, join us inside to tour the various ofrendas (altars) of the dead.
