Celebrate our beloved Day of the Dead tradition in New York City with art-marking, live music and more.

Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos) is a time to honor and revere our deceased family members and ancestors. This tradition is rooted in the native Mexican belief that life on earth is a preparation for the next world and of the importance of maintaining a strong relationship to the dead. Join us and dedicate our ofrenda (altar) to your departed loved-ones by placing copies of photographs.

Event is outdoors rain or shine. The scheduled activities are subject to change in case of snow or high winds. For updates or any changes during the event, follow us on Twitter at   @MexCulture

About Day of the Dead

Day of the Dead has been one of Mexico’s most important festivals since Pre-Hispanic times. It is a time for families to gather and welcome the souls of the dead on their annual visit home. Cempasúchil (marigold) flowers, burning copal incense, fresh pan de muertos bread, candles, sugar skulls, photographs and mementos of the departed adorn special altars. In Mexico, Day of the Dead is celebrated over an entire week with the preparation of altars, foods, dance, music and special offerings for people who have died. Mano a Mano recreates the magical space of a village churchyard during the celebration and has organized a series of events including altar building, workshops, dance, poetry and music.
