Pyramid Day Retouch.jpg

Join us as The Scottsdale Old Adobe Mission, Grandeza Mexicana, and Lore Media and Arts invites you to celebrate and learn about The Day of the Dead (Dia de Los Muertos), a time honored tradition dedicated to the remembrance of loved ones who have passed on, and the honoring of life itself. To honor the deceased, altars are traditionally built and decorated with marigolds, photographs, and favorite foods of the departed.

The Event

Community, Culture, Theatre and Art come to life as downtown Scottsdale celebrates Dia de Los Muertos, an ancient Aztec ritual that both remember the dead and mocks death itself. Discover the extraordinary rituals and observances that take place during this ancient Mesoamerian celebration while enjoying family activities, vibrant music, indigenous and modern folklorico dance, elaborate altar displays, sculptured art, educational lectures and an interactive community altar.
