After going dark in 2020 due to the pandemic, Hollywood Forever’s 22nd annual Día de los Muertos celebration is back this year, taking place on Saturday, October 30th. To allow for social distancing, the event comes in a new format – “Dia de los Muertos” and “Noche de los Muertos” will be two separately ticketed events, allowing guests to experience a more intimate look at the year’s theme – The Return of Quetzalcoatl. Both events will showcase dozens of altars, Aztec dancers, art exhibitions, traditional food, arts, and crafts.
Día de los Muertos will feature a children’s plaza, a traditional Aztec procession, costume contest, a bilingual marionette show, and family focused cultural performances such as a sensory-based art class with LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes’ Art Curator, Ximena Martin.
Noche de los Muertos will feature music-focused programming, including a performance by headliner Mon Laferte, along with award ceremonies for the altar programs and the best Catrina costume.
Tickets for Día de los Muertos start at $40 – doors open at 9 am PDT.
Tickets for Noche de los Muertos start at $50 – doors open at 5 pm PDT.
$1 per ticket sold will be donated to CIELO (Comunidades Indígenas En Liderazgo), an Indigenous women-led organization that works with indigenous-migrant communities in Los Angeles.
