Every Saturday in October, Self Help Graphics offers free art workshops where participants will learn about and create traditional crafts to honor the dead. The workshops are free, for all ages and all materials are included
Participants take part in a public procession alongside life-size calaveras, carrying personal and family items that are carried and offered to the deceased at a large Community Altar. The procession and traditional blessing kick off a festive celebration with arts, crafts and food vendors, musical performances, face painting, and children’s art workshops. Over 10,000 guests enjoy this community gathering that celebrates community, life, and death.
