It's such an important year for us to celebrate life and mourn our loved ones. Our focus is health and wellness, and this year's theme is "Curando Corazones", or "Healing Hearts." For this reason, the 2021 Dia de los Muertos Festival will resume in-person activities at a smaller scale, offering Covid-19 vaccinations and testing on site, and highlighting the fundamental and authentic elements of the annual celebration - ofrendas, Danza Azteca, and low-riders.
Can we count on you to volunteer this year? All volunteers receive a Día de los Muertos Festival T-Shirt, lunch provided, healthy snacks & water throughout the day.
We are in need of hundreds of volunteers to help for 3-4 hour shifts from 6am - 6pm. We have exciting opportunities that can work with your availability!
Face mask and social distancing will be required.
We are offering various volunteer opportunities to connect with the community. Are you a part of a school or employee group? Groups are welcomed to participate!
