Many countries celebrate "Dia de Los Santos" (All Saints Day, November 1st) and "Dia de Los Muertos (All Souls Day, November 2nd) including the southwestern U.S. and other parts of the Americas. This is a ritual blend of indigenous and Catholic traditions. El Dia de Los Muertos is celebrated in many parts of the world as a time to remember loved ones and honor their memory. People go to gravesites with flowers, food and favorite beverages. Families decorate altars dedicated to their loved ones and surround them with pictures and flowers while sharing food, music and dance to celebrate the continuity of life and death.

To request any disability-related accommodations for this event please contact the event coordinator at least three business days prior to the event.
