Celebrate the Mexican tradition of Dia de los Muertos or Day of The Dead with the free “Dia de Los Muertos Xicago” event at the National Museum of Mexican Art on October 29, 2022 in the Pilsen community.
Honoring loved ones who have passed away with offrendas or altars filled with photos, flowers and personal mementos is the hallmark of the Dia de los Muertos tradition. The National Museum of Mexican Art and surrounding areas will be transformed into a space for remembering loved ones with dozens of offrendas created by community members.
The Dia de los Muertos Xicago event will include live music, art activities and a large illuminated offrenda projected outside of the museum. The event runs from 3-8 pm and is free. Don’t miss the Dia de los Muertos Memories & Offerings exhibit in the museum’s main gallery, which honors people from Mexico and the U.S. who died from COVID and other tragedies last year.
Admission to the museum is always free. Over 10,000 visitors attend the museum’s Dia de los Muertos celebration every year, making it the largest in the U.S., so arrive early.
