Dia de Los Muertos ~ Day of the Dead will be celebrated
until Saturday, November 2, 2019, at
For over 30 years, the merchants on Olvera Street have celebrated Dia de Los Muertos. The celebration has evolved to incorporate the pre-Columbian, Aztec, Mayan and Catholic rituals surrounding death. Each night, a vibrant and colourful procession sets the stage for our ceremony. Dia de Los Muertos is, in fact, a celebration of life – it is not a time to mourn our loved ones, rather it is a time to remember the lives they lead and the many things they enjoyed during that life. Death is a part of life, and so we honour it. Dia de Los Muertos at Olvera Street is the only celebration of its kind in Los Angeles. This is a festival, with altars on display, children’s workshops, face painting, and entertainment throughout. FREE!
