THE MARIGOLD PROJECT INVITES YOU TO THE 29TH ANNUAL
FESTIVAL OF ALTARS!
On November 2nd, the Day of the Dead Festival of Altars will be VIRTUALLY FOR THE FIRST TIME!
Please join us and participate by building an altar at home!
The Day of the Dead Festival of Altars brings our communities together to celebrate our most meaningful events—life and death in one spirit. We create six community altars to symbolize our connection to the earth and our ancestors. The making and viewing of traditional, contemporary, or experimental altars is a unique transformative experience connecting us closer to our Ancestors.
Six altars are designed and built collaboratively by artists and community in all disciplines. Each shrine will represent an element, a universal symbol, and a stage of life.
NOTE: This is a family-friendly event. Please respect the sacredness of our event. All are welcome to participate in the sharing of culture, healing, and celebrating the lives of our ancestors.

ABOUT THE MARIGOLD PROJECT:
The Marigold Project serves the community by creating healing spaces connecting us to our ancestors and our impermanence in One Spirit. By providing cultural education, art and writing therapy workshops, and altar building skills connecting as a community, we honor the circle of life and death. We respect life by teaching our children who we are in the cosmos, our humanity, and the preservation of our planet.
