Noche De Ofrenda 2021


The traditional Noche de Ofrenda ceremony honoring the dead returns to Grand Park as a live event and performance! The joint event of reflection and remembrance will feature a communal circle and blessing led by the indigenous community and also include poetry and dance.

Saturday October 23, 7:00PM-9:00PM

Grand Park Performance Lawn (Near Hill Street)
200 N Grand Ave Los Angeles, CA 90012

In a continued partnership with Grand Park, LACMA will host two family-friendly arts-based workshops dedicated to making personalized calavera—one of the most recognizable cultural and artistic elements of the Day of the Dead festivities. Each 20-minute workshop held throughout Noche de Ofrenda will engage kids to create their own calavera using air dry clay, paper plates and other craft items as LACMA teaching artists show park-goers how to sculpt, shape and transform ordinary materials into colorful Día de Los Muertos artworks.
