Día de los Muertos

Day of the Dead

Día de los Muertos

Día de los Muertos is recognized all over Mexico with plazas in each community decorated with elaborate and sacred alters adorned with beautiful arrangements of flowers, candles, and the favorite food of loved ones dedicated to the deceased. This day commemorates honoring loved ones who have passed on and venerating their return. This celebration incorporates history, culture, science, and other educational aspects that participants learn and integrate into their lives.

The Mexican Cultural Center continues this tradition with strong collaborative relationships with numerous organizations, including the following:

  • Denver Botanic Gardens (2019, month-long Days of the Dead event with total attendance of 41,397)
  • Breckcreate, Breckenridge
  • Poudre Library, Fort Collins
  • Thornton


Foundation and corporate sponsorships are important to keep MCC programs — like Día de los Muertos — healthy and sustainable. If you are interested in learning more about these opportunities, please email or call 303-331-0172.
