Celebrate the tradition of Día de Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, with a two-day festival filled with music, dance and storytelling at the Desert Botanical Garden, Nov. 4 & 5, 2023.
This two-day celebration features an immersive experience that includes a mega community altar centered on the history and symbolism of the elegant skeleton figure La Catrina, a decorative and floral archway, delicious food, hands-on activities, dance, music and so much more during this weekend celebration.
Each day ends with La Procesión, a procession through the garden by all the performers and audience members, concluding with a traditional burning of troubles. La Procesión represents the ancient tradition of marching as a community to burial sites in order to honor those who have passed.
This event is free with garden admission.
