On the Day of the Dead, people of all ages celebrate their loved ones who have passed away, participating in a festival that has roots nearly 4,000 years old. A national holiday in Mexico, Day of the Dead is celebrated on October 31st through November 2nd each year. Join us this year on Sunday , October 29th for our annual Day of the Dead potluck dinner celebration at 6 pm at Ozark Folkways.
This year in addition to our annual potluck dinner, we will open up the gallery during the day Saturday and Sunday for anyone interested in creating their own Day of the Dead Altar honoring loved ones. That evening we will share food and drink and fond memories of friends no longer with us or tributes to those among us and create fond memories !
This event is free to the public (but donations to Folkways are always welcome!)
Please bring a dish to share.
