Introduction to Dia de los Muertos - IN PERSON
The University Heights Center, Top Floor Auditorium
Seattle, WA
Share this event:

Learn about the moving practices of the Mexican fiesta, the Day of the Dead, from Rene De Los Santos. He shares this powerful tradition of how to honor those who have passed on but are still important in your life. Day of the Dead is November 2, so you will be prepared to celebrate!

Please bring with you:
- Photographs or favorite foods of your beloved family who have passed on, to place on the altar
- Wear bright clothing: its a party!
- Proof of vaccination or a recent negative test

Rene will tell us about the fiesta, show how to set up an Muertos Altar, and invite us to reflect & share, as you feel comfortable. This event is appropriate for folks age 12 and up. Guests will go home with a hand-crafted marigold, the flower of the fiesta!

This event will be offered both IN PERSON on Sunday 10/16 and and ONLINE on Sunday 10/23. They require different RSVPs, so please visit the 10/23 event if you would like to attend online.

If attending IN PERSON, please plan to mask. Seating will be set up to allow distance between households. It will take place on the 2nd floor of the University Heights Center, where there is abundant free parking but no elevator. Details sent as you RSVP.

Rene (pronouns he/him) is the Bilingual Whole Person Health Navigator for YMCA of Greater Seattle and a member of Gathering Ground's Leadership Team. Rene is an avid hiker, yogi, dancer and advocate for human rights, equity, diversity and inclusion.
