Dia de los Muertos in the Mission is one of the best traditions in San Francisco. It has been celebrated in the hood since the early 70’s. This isn’t an excuse to get loaded and party in the streets like Cinco de Mayo. This is a traditional and respectful cultural celebration. It’s alcohol-free. Bring flowers, candles, and mementos of loved ones to place on altars.
Build your own altar
The Marigold Project was created in 1990 for participants to build altars, leave offerings, heal, and celebrate the lives of our ancestors, in Garfield Park. It serves as a community graveyard for the night with expressions of art, music, live performances, and a walking procession through San Francisco’s historical Mission District.
