Día De Los Muertos


"Between performances from Aztec dance group Cenzontile Cuicatl and altar ceremonies, no cultural stone will be left unturned."

Program Overview

Día de los Muertos is a celebration of the traditional Mexican holiday and is planned by Fleisher in conjunction with La Calaca Flaca (Skinny Skeleton).

Every October and November, the committee plans a celebration that spans South Philadelphia including two altar celebrations, a vigil, and a procession through South Philadelphia. In addition, Fleisher hosts a number of free workshops where participants work with local artists to create elements of the altar and learn more about the holiday and its importance in Mexican culture.
