Virtual Día de Muertos Xicágo

Join us on Sunday, November 1st, starting at 12:00 pm to remember and celebrate your loved ones from the safety of your home this year. Día de Muertos Xicágo normally takes place behind the National Museum of Mexican Art, where guests build ofrendas dedicated to departed loved ones, listen to music, and chat with friends. While we cannot host you in person due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we look forward to sharing this Mexican holiday with you online.

The virtual festivities will feature live musical performances by Los Gallos and Mariachi Nuevo Tapatio, sugar skull face painting demos and fun Día de Muertos art activities to help you decorate your Day of the Dead altars. Spend the day at home with your family and make an ofrenda, cook a delicious meal or simply watch along while we deliver entertaining segments to you through the internet.

This virtual celebration will be presented via Youtube and Facebook. Register for free here and we’ll send you a schedule of the programming and tips for enjoying the day. Registration is not required.

Register here.
