Driftless Region’s Día de los Muertos Celebration: A Mexican Cultural and Educational Event
October 8, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - October 11, 2022 @ 7:30 pm
Día de los Muertos, also known as the Day of the Dead, is a traditional Mexican cultural festival to honor loved ones who have passed away. This one-day festival offers modalities to honor loved ones and hands-on workshops to engage attendees in Mexican folk art. A Day of the Dead Altar or Ofrenda is constructed during the festival and attendees are encouraged to bring a photograph of a loved one who has passed away to add to the Ofrenda.
Hands-on workshops include: sugar skulls, corn husk flowers, embroidery, and nixtamal tortilla-making. Attendees can participate in painting a community mural, playing a traditional Loteria game with staff from the Consulate of Mexico in Milwaukee, and watching a professional Aztec Dance performance.
