11th Annual El PANTEÓN De SACRAMENTO /Día de los Muertos 2020: A Moonlit Slow Drive-Through Remembrance

The 11th Annual Panteón de Sacramento (Sacramento's Cemetery) WILL LIVE ON this year. It is re-imagined as A Moonlit Slow Drive-Through Remembrance held on the grounds of The Latino Center of Art & Culture (LCAC), 2700 Front St., in Sacramento. Visitors must attend in cars. WHAT: 11th ANNUAL EL PANTEÓN DE SACRAMENTO: A Moonlit Slow Drive-Thru Remembrance

This yearly signature LCAC event celebrating the powerful traditions of Día de los Muertos/Day of the Dead will remain free (DONATIONS WELCOMED) with timed reservations. The Panteón de Sacramento centerpiece this year is an urban re-creation of a candle-lit Mexico graveyard with an adjoining church. A video projection will show footage of the 2019 10th Annual Panteón de Sacramento in midtown Sacramento.

Bathed in the light of the moon with the drifting fragrances of copal and cempasuchil (marigolds/flower of the dead), one will immediately feel transported to a place of memories and the presence of those who have passed. Twenty traditional memorials (altares) created by families and communities of friends will honor those who have passed will be up lit and visible from cars. Traditional artistic programming created by a team of artists led by Vidal Beltran includes:

• Live Traditional Acoustic Music

• Ballet Folklorico

• Mojigangas (giant puppets)

• Video Projection

• Family Ofrendas

• Spotify Playlist

Official CDC Health Protocols are being followed. Guidelines will be on the Eventbrite.com and the LCAC website.
