MACC does Día de los Muertos

Friday, October 21, 2022 by Tai Moses

The Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center is preparing to celebrate its 15th Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead festival, an annual tradition in which family and community members celebrate the lives of ancestors, family, friends, veterans, and public figures who have passed on to the other side. This year’s multi-day event kicks off with the Austin Studio Tours opening reception on Nov. 1, continues the following day with a viewing of the Día de los Muertos ofrendas and winds up with the gran fiesta on Nov. 5 from 4-10 p.m. at Sanchez Elementary, 73 San Marcos St. Find more details here.
