The 20th annual Day of the Dead celebration at Hollywood Forever Cemetery will be held Nov. 2, 2019, from noon to midnight. This year’s guiding theme is “Sacred Migrations,” inspired in the Monarch Butterfly and its winter home – the Mexican state of Michoacán, which is also one of the two cultural heartlands in Mexico where the ancient traditions of Dia de los Muertos have been celebrated the longest and most vibrantly.
Performing at the event will be Cafe Tacvba, Lido Pimienta, La Doña, Delirians, and Savila. There will be also art exhibits, dance numbers, and food and drink for purchase.
General admission is $25 (in advance). Children under 8 years and seniors over 65 will enjoy free admission until 4:00 pm. Parking will be free. For tickets visit hollywoodforever.com and ladayofthedead.com
Hollywood Forever Cemetery is located at 6000 Santa Monica Blvd, in Hollywood CA.

Went there last night and had a great time but what a joke. The lines were crazy and they did not have a special line for people that spent hours getting dressed up. You waited in the same line as people who were not participating! What a joke!
