LOCATION: Figge Art Museum
Join us on SUNDAY, October 24 as we celebrate Día de los Muertos, Day of the Dead, at the Figge Art Museum and honor the memories of our loved ones through music, dance, food, and community. Step inside the museum to visit the exhibition, along with the LULAC Youth Council traditional altar. Outside, guests will enjoy food and performances on the Figge plaza. Come dressed as a Catrina to enter the costume contest and join the parade around the building. If you would like to share a picture and/or memory of a loved one who has passed, please email the information to [email protected] to be shared on the community altar. There are many safe options for your family to enjoy the celebration.
This event is made possible through a partnership with the LULAC Quad Cities, Ascentra Credit Union and Hola America and is sponsored by Northwest Bank & Trust Co. Museum admission will be free all day.
