Join us as OMCA comes alive for the 23rd annual community celebration honoring Days of the Dead traditions in conjunction with our Metamorphosis & Migration: Days of the Dead exhibition.

Craft activities, tasty food, dance and music groups, colorful ofrendas, and ceremonia bring the community together for this healing tradition. Watch demonstrations of traditional Mesoamerican arts and cooking, and browse Days of the Dead merchandise by local artisans for your home altar at our mercado. Enjoy performances ranging from contemporary popular music to folkloric dance to mariachi. Join in a procession to open the celebration led by Aztec dancers and Days of the Dead committee members. View community-created altars throughout the OMCA Gardens paying homage to loved ones lost. Get your tickets online early and save for this popular event.
