Day of the Dead Festival

Saturday, November 3, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free
Dia de los Muertos

Celebrate Día de los Muertos, a Mexican holiday honoring the dead with food, drink and festivities.

It’s a time to commemorate the dead and celebrate their lives with family and friends. Our free celebration will begin with a community procession and dedication of a traditional altar for offerings to the deceased. Bring your offerings (pictures, mementos, small items) to the Phinney Center before or during the event to be included on the altar. (You can pick them back up at the Phinney Center by November 10).

Come and enjoy live music and dance, decorate sugar skulls, do arts & crafts, get your face painted, eat delicious food, and drink Mexican hot chocolate. Plus support PNA’s Spanish language preschool co-op with a silent auction and a raffle.
