Tubac's 6th Annual Traditional Day of the Dead Celebration
Phone: (520) 398-2252
Time: From: 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM
The Tubac Presidio State Historic Park's celebration of Día de los Muertos is an event exuberantly honoring our ancestors and community. Everyone is welcome to create an ofrenda or altar and these will be displayed throughout the community. We'll have face painting, live music, Día de Los Muertos presentations, food vendors with a wonderful variety of offerings, performances from the Montessori School, ballet folklorico dancers, Angel Perez, international visual artist Gabriela Galup and the Nogales Marching Band and Mariachi Band, ofrenda exhibits and crafts for the children. In the afternoon a procession will march through the streets to the Tubac 'Cementery' and end at a symbolic bonfire in the Sculpture Garden at the K. Newby Gallery. Participants are encouraged to come in costume, have their faces painted and bring mementos of loved ones to memorialize in the parade and at the bonfire.
