Grand Park's Downtown Día de los Muertos
Experience, hear and learn about the traditions of Día de los Muertos with Grand Park’s Downtown Día de los Muertos. This annual community-focused undertaking, curated in partnership with Self-Help Graphics, brings together the diverse voices, perspectives, experiences and neighborhoods from among the many who make up one Los Angeles. The park offers a vibrant tapestry of ofrendas (altars) that spotlight vital community issues, important leaders and loved ones who are important to Angelenos. To deepen your appreciation of and provide context for these public art installations, you can choose to listen to pre-recorded audio guides on Grand Park’s digital channels, which offer insights from the artists.
Noche de Ofrenda
Grand Park’s Downtown Día de los Muertos also features Noche de Ofrenda, a contemplative ceremony and night of reflection that honor the dead. Witness live performances and traditional indigenous practices in a contemporary celebration that features a blessing, poetry and dance.
Grand Park is powered by The Music Center.
When we speak of our vision to deepen the cultural lives of all Angelenos, we turn to the work of TMC Arts. This team champions the diverse voices and communities of Los Angeles, fostering connection, creativity and enrichment. TMC Arts programs connect people, offering us the chance to get creative and to learn as we discover something new or enjoy something familiar. Many programs are free and low-cost; they take place outdoors on Jerry Moss Plaza at The Music Center and in Grand Park, inside The Music Center's theatres and in schools and neighborhoods all across L.A. County.
