The Asistencia is commencing a new practice with Dia de los Muertos on November 6th, 2021 from 2-9pm. At its core, this holiday reunites and honors beloved ancestors, family and friends that have departed.
We are fortunate in having amazing volunteers spearhead this event. They are developing the educational and cultural programs, wonderful entertainment, and creating relevant children’s activities. Current entertainment includes Ana Gonzalez, Los Romeros, Jose Agua and Ballet Folklorico Cultural.
Therefore we are asking for your support by attending the event (suggested $5 donation), volunteering, reserving an ofrenda (altar), or corporate sponsorship.
Admission: suggested $5 donation ( please register @ https://asistenciadiadelosmuertos.eventbrite.com)
One aspect of the traditional observance of this celebration is preparation of an “ofrenda”- or offering – to the members of one’s family who are departed. The creation of this table may include photos of the deceased, favorite foods, or objects used or beloved by them. If you would like to participate in this meaningful ritual to honor your loved ones and welcome them to the celebration, you can reserve an ofrenda, by selecting the ticket option. Ticket purchase of an ofrenda includes use of a 6′ table and black tablecloth. You and your family will be allowed to decorate the ofrenda prior to the event. Contact Heather Ross (firstname.lastname@example.org) to coordinate or for any questions.
All funds raised at this event, like all events we have, go towards the Asistencia’s operations and restoration. We have a long list of projects that need attention so residents and visitors can continue to enjoy this historic landmark for 200+ more years!
This is a no-pets event. Please leave Fido at home. No smoking or vaping.
