Once again, Washington, D. C artists get together for the annual celebration of The day of dead/El dia de los muertos.

Please join them at Lamont Park on Mount Pleasant St. NW, on November 1st for an afternoon of remembrance, music, poetry and culture.

The altar is being designed by artists Gabriela Lujan, Alfredo Herrera, Juan Lopez and Mauricio Lopez.

We gather at the park at 3:30PM and then at 4:00 we will walk down Mt. Pleasant in a colorful parade led by local musicians; then immediately come back to the park for an artistic program until 6:00pm

This year performers include Lilo Gonzalez, Luci Murphy, Quique Aviles , Cosita Seria, Carlos Parada Ayala, DJ Mezcla, Anexo Social, Lori Tsang, and others TBA.

This community effort includes the participation of GALA’s Hispanic Theatre Paso Nuevo program and the youth organizers of Many Languages One Voice.

The event is supported by the Mayor’s Office on Latino Affairs. Bring photos of your relatives that have passed away and add them to the altar.
