Festival de las Calaveras (Day of the Dead)


Festival de las Calaveras is a volunteer-organized multimedia Latinx music and arts festival in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Centered on the traditional and contemporary celebration of Day of the Dead, an indigenous Mexican tradition which honors the memory of ancestors and departed loved ones, the duality of life and death, and the corn harvest season.

*Long story, ask me about it in person.
