Día de los Muertos Celebration

Community Celebration of Traditional Music, Dance, and Art
Category: Free Events, Halloween
City: Santa Cruz, CA

Join us for the Día de los Muertos community celebration of traditional music, dance, and art at Evergreen Cemetery.

Enjoy live performances by Senderos’ Centeotl Danza y Baile and Ensamble Musical de Senderos. Stroll through the Cemetery in a self-guided presentation of community altars. Follow the signs through the grounds to view ofrendas (altars) honoring those buried at Evergreen Cemetery created by local community organizations and members.

Ongoing Community Collaboration: Recordando Recuerdos

Recordando Recuerdos translates to remembering memories and will be a community-sourced piece honoring life, death, and loss. This community piece began in 2020 as the pandemic crisis experienced in our community became significantly more visible. It was an invitation and reminder of the power of collective mourning and care.

Recordando Recuerdos continues to grow and we invite you to share your story on a collaborative artwork made of vibrant colors with names of loved ones, objects, and moments lost that you wish to honor and remember.
