Dia de los Muertos 2021 Event Information
On an annual basis, the Davis Cemetery District holds a Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration on their grounds. This celebration is one of the last Mesoamerican indigenous-influenced rituals, honoring mother earth and all ancestors. This celebration is part of an effort to create a community, a sense of belonging, and global awareness of cultural richness in our multicultural society.
Due to the high transmission rates of COVID-19 in the county, the district has made the difficult decision to modify this year’s celebration, keeping health and safety our highest priority.
Friday, October 29th through Monday, November 1st
- Educational signage will be placed along our eastern internal roadway, just north of the memorial fountain
- A public altar will be set up outside the administration building for viewing. We also welcome contributions to the altar from our visitors
- While on the grounds, visitors will be able to scan QR codes to listen to a welcome video and hear performances by Mariachi Puente
- Fresh marigolds will be available for the public to place on graves in order to honor their loved ones
Ven a honrar a los antepasados y seres queridos, que han cruzado al mundo de los espíritus.
