Event Details

Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a celebration of life and death.  The centerpiece of the celebration is an altar, or ofrenda, built in private homes and cemeteries. These aren’t altars for worshipping; they’re meant to welcome spirits back to the realm of the living. Ofrendas display portraits, crosses, candles, flowers, incense, and water, a refreshment for the spirits who have made the long trip home from the hereafter. Design your own ceramic calaveras just in time for Día de los Muertos. All materials are provided.
