3rd Annual Día de los Muertos Celebration, 4-8pm October 28, 2002

Día de los Muertos is a celebration of the lives of those who have passed on using indigenous traditions and modern Mexican practices. It is celebrated with “ofrendas” or offerings of flowers, food, candles, and pictures of departed loved ones.  Many families in the US continue to practice this tradition in their homes today.  At CommuniCare, we believe the practice of these traditions also supports cultural resilience, healing and wellness that have a profound positive impact and unite the community in tough times.

Come join us for our
 3rd Annual Día de los Muertos Celebration taking place Friday, October 28th from 4-8pm at our Hansen Family Health Center Garden!

In partnership with the Health Education Council, Taller Arte Nuevo Amanecer (TANA), Yolo County HHSA, WJUSD and other community organizations help build our interactive altar, enjoy traditional food, Aztec dance, learn from community partners, and pay respect and celebrate our departed loved ones. Our goal is to educate and reveal the beauty and value of sharing this tradition with Woodland and the larger Yolo County community.
