Day of the Dead Mexican Festival
Join us for our annual Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos) celebration in New York City. A variety of events and workshops will be offered in the churchyard of St. Mark’s in-the-Bowery. We invite you to come and remember your own departed loved-ones and bring copies of photographs, candles, and marigold flowers to adorn our community Altar throughout the two-day celebration.
Day of the Dead has been one of Mexico’s most important festivals since Pre-Hispanic times. It is a time for families to gather and welcome the souls of the dead on their annual visit home. Cempasúchil (marigold) flowers, burning copal incense, fresh pan de muertos bread, candles, sugar skulls, photographs and mementos of the departed adorn special altars. In Mexico, Day of the Dead is celebrated over an entire week with the preparation of altars, foods, dance, music and special offerings for people who have died. Mano a Mano recreates the magical space of a village churchyard during the celebration and has organized a series of events including altar building, workshops, dance, poetry and music.
