Día de los Muertos 2021
The Hispanic American Council would like to invite you to our 7th Annual Día de Los Muertos Celebration, which will take place as a virtual event on November 2nd, 2020. El Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a celebration filled with music, folkloric dances, traditional art, delicious food, and fun activities for families. This celebration originates from México and is a Native Aztec ceremony used to remember, honor, and support the spiritual journey of our ancestors, for their deaths were not the end but only the beginning of their journey to the spirit realm.
El Día de los Muertos is a way for our Hispanic community to remain connected to its culture. It is also a unique opportunity for the community at large to witness a beautiful and culturally unique practice. It is important to honor, celebrate, and teach our history to our children and community. We invite you to tune in for a great evening so you may experience for yourself the beauty of this special holiday and accompany us as we honor our ancestors.
Since this year’s event will be virtual, we will invite individuals and businesses to come to El Concilio to build their own altar. The main part of the event will be a virtual tour of all the beautiful altars from the community. We will also have a piñata competition (find the form to submit your piñata here) and have gift bags for children to pick up from our office ahead of time. We are looking forward to appearances from a folkloric dance group as well as a presentation about the history of Dia de los Muertos’ tradition. If you have any questions about the event or are interested in building an altar, please contact Emma Robbins at firstname.lastname@example.org or send us a message through our Facebook page, El Concilio Kzoo.
We appreciate the support of leaders and businesses for their contribution to our children and community. Your business or your organization can be a sponsor of this event, contact us by email or call us for more questions.
