Albuquerque Day of the Dead Celebration

In Old Town, our celebrations! 

And one of the greatest is Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead)! Day of the Dead is a holiday that reunites the living and dead. It is unlike any other holiday because instead of mourning our departed loved ones, we instead celebrate their life and all that they created and accomplished! 

Church Street Cafe is celebrating the Day of the Dead all week long with Old Town traditions from October 28 – November 5.

On October 28, we will be kicking off the celebrations with a day for our kids! There will be face painting, live music throughout Old Town, decorations, and even a movie night (Coco)! 

October 29th is the annual Day of the Tread, an annual themed bicycling event which goes through Old Town. More info here: 

October 30th you will be able to enjoy the many decorations throughout Old Town for Dia de Los Muertos!
