WEDNESDAY 2 PM – 11 PM
Dia de Los Muertos Festival of Altars SF
Potrero del Sol Park, Potrero & Cesar Chavez, San Francisco, CA.
On November 2nd, the Day of the Dead Festival of Altars will be held in Potrero Del Sol Park, aka. La Raza Park. Please come and participate in building an altar or come to view the community altars.
The making and viewing of traditional, contemporary, or experimental altars is a uniquely transformative experience connecting us closer to our Ancestors. Bring flowers, 8-inch glass prayer candles, and mementos of loved ones to contribute to the Community Altars.
This year, we honor Coatlicue (Nahuatl for “Serpent Skirt”), the Aztec Earth Goddess, symbol of the earth as both creator and destroyer, and mother of the gods and mortals. Coatlicue is an iteration of Tonantzin and embodies the Virgin of Guadalupe.
Today, we revere the Virgin of Guadalupe in the way the ancients revered Coatlicue.
We honor Coatlicue with this year’s Festival of Altars to acknowledge and fight against all of the challenges women face today all over the world.
Dearest Community –
Join us on November 2nd, 2022, for the anual Day of the Dead – Festival of Altars in Potrero del Sol Pak aka La Raza Park, San Francisco, California. The Ritual Circle will begin at 5:00 pm. The Festival of Altars will run from 2:00 pm – 11:00 pm.
It has been our great honor to provide this free and inclusive community event that bridges life and death, joy and grief, the cycles of life, and the world of the Ancestors.
And it is our goal to do it again this year, in-person and live-streamed, and to create a documentary with this year’s footage.
