About Dia de los Muertos: Community Alters and Ribbon Installation

Join a re-imagined Día de los Muertos community celebration at Evergreen Cemetery with the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History and Senderos!

Stroll through the Cemetery between Noon and 3:30pm in a self-guided presentation of community altars and Día de los Muertos history. Follow the signs through the grounds to view ofrendas created by a handful of Santa Cruz County organizations. There will also be educational and informative signage to take you through the history and traditions of the 3,000-year-old holiday.

See how the MAH's community-sourced art installation Recordando Recuerdos is coming together with a viewing of the in-progress ribbon installation. You can share your memorial or story for the art piece through the event website.

This event will be closely monitored by MAH staff so guests can comfortably browse the art safely and comfortably. Please do your part to keep these events safe by abiding by these guidelines and listening to MAH staffers.
