Join us as we celebrate Día de los Muertos and transform the Museum and surrounding park into a beautiful space for remembering our departed loved ones. On this special day, guests will enjoy heartfelt ofrendas (altars), live musical performances, face painting, art activities, and Pan de Muerto (traditional Day of the Dead Bread).

We invite families and individuals to take part in the event by creating ofrendas (altars) in Harrison Park or by sharing a photograph of a departed loved one to be incorporated into a large photo memorial projected onto the Museum’s exterior.

Día de los Muertos Xicágo is free and open to the public and will take place rain or shine.

This event is easily accessible via Chicago’s public transit system. Options include a ride on the CTA Pink Line train, using the Damen or 18th St. stops or take the #50 Damen Bus to 19th St. or the #9 Ashland Bust to 18th St.

Music performances schedule coming soon!
