Grand Park (Between Grand Ave and Hill St)

Experience, hear and learn about the traditions of Día de los Muertos at the ninth annual Grand Park's Downtown Día de los Muertos. This 12-day public art installation honors people, places and ideas that merit reverence and commemoration. Presented in partnership with Self Help Graphics & Art, Grand Park’s Downtown Día de los Muertos invites park-goers to contribute to the community altar and to stroll through the park to view 20 altars made by professional artists and local community organizations, including East Los Angeles Women’s Center, Eastside LEADS, and Latino Outreach Understand Division (LOUD) / Los Angeles Family AIDS Network, among others. This year's altars will include an homage to the late Chicana activist, author and community organizer, Betita Martínez, as well as altars honoring the LGBTQ community and the loss of community resources during the pandemic.

The large, artistic altars will be spaced safely to enhance public engagement and maximize social distancing among guests. Face coverings are strongly encouraged for park-goers walking through the park or viewing the altars and installations. Grand Park will also be offering pre-recorded audio guides with insights from the artists to complement altar viewing.

The annual Noche de Ofrenda ceremony returns to Grand Park as a live event and performance. Noche de Ofrenda is a contemplative ceremony and night of reflection that connects communities to traditions and highlights indigenous practices during a contemporary celebration. Co-presented with Self Help Graphics & Art, the joint event will feature a performance by Danza Divina de Los Angeles with special guest and legacy danzante General Lazaro Arvizu, as well as free LACMA-led calavera art workshops inspired by Aztec art.

Event and workshops are open to all ages. Park-goers must wear face coverings when attending the Noche de Ofrenda event.
