Dia de los Muertos is a highly celebrated and significant family holiday throughout Mexico, Latin America and the Southwest. Dating back 3,000 years to the time of the Olmecs, it is a day when homage is paid to our ancestors with prayers, offerings of food, and the building of altars to the beloved departed. Each region has its unique style of celebration. In Arizona, the annual Dia de los Muertos is a Celebration of Life.
The festival features traditional music and dance by local performers, children’s activities, folk arts and crafts, ethnic food, community altar, and a candle light procession. Desert Dance Theatre, Step’s Junk Funk and Crossroads Performance Group performs after 4:00pm.
