Day of the Dead Petaluma
This year Petaluma will be alive for the 15th anniversary with the spirit of El Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) from October 3rd through November 8th. The celebration will feature workshops, altars, art exhibits, music, dance, film and storytelling all around Petaluma. The fine arts exhibits will be on display at The Petaluma Historical Library and Museum.
Celebrated on November 1 and 2 in Latin America and South America, El Dia de los Muertos is a ritual time to honor loved ones who have died and to acknowledge death as a part of life. In Petaluma, as in many communities, El Dia de los Muertos has grown into cross-cultural sharing that offers a unique partnership between and among cultures.
Artist reception will be held on Saturday October 3 from 6:00pm-8:00pm at The Petaluma Historical Library and Museum.
