About Muertos Fest

The Day of the Dead has been celebrated throughout Mexico and Latin America since pre-Columbian times. Today, it is celebrated across the Americas on November 1 and 2. This is the time in which the living lovingly pay tribute and remember their family members and departed friends.

Remembrances include family visits to the local cemetery, processions through town squares, and inventive homemade altars that honor departed family members with photos, “Pan de Muerto” sweet bread and flowers.
