On Friday, the Historic Old Sacramento Foundation will partner with the Sol Collection for a Día de los Muertos celebration. This will be held in front of the Sacramento History Museum and will be full of things to do, including interactive altars, games, and calavera face painting. There will also be live music and a procession led by Aztec dancers. Admission is free, but there will be vendors and food available for purchase so you might want to bring some cash.
On Saturday and Sunday, La Raza Galería Posada will host their 4th Annual Panteón de Sacramento. This event will feature altares created by local families, artists, and nonprofit groups. There will also be a community wall for guests to write tributes and memories of their departed loved ones. Both days there will be live music and traditional dancing, as well as vendors where you can purchase traditional arts and crafts.
Both events seem like a lot of fun, so be sure to stop by!
