NEW LOCATION IN DOWNTOWN LONGMONT: at the intersection of 4th Avenue and Kimbark Street.

Family Fiesta: 

The Longmont Museum is joining forces with the Firehouse Art Center, Longmont Downtown Development Authority, and El Comité de Longmont to bring you the biggest and best Día de los Muertos celebration Longmont has ever seen—all held downtown! Live music and dancing, sugar-skull decorating, traditional food, altars, craft making, Catrina face painting, and so much more! Come dressed in your finest calaca (skeleton) apparel! Park downtown or take the free shuttle from the Museum so you can see the exhibit too.

Gigantes Procession:

At 6:15 PM, join a procession of dozens of gigantes, traditional giant puppets made by local artists. The procession will depart from the Family Fiesta and walk through downtown Longmont, ending at the Dickens Opera House.

Catrina Ball:

The party moves to the Dickens Opera House for the night starting at 7:30 PM. The venue will be decorated with candles, marigolds, and traditional papelpicado. Admission includes deadly drinks, festive food, live music and an exhibition of altars. Get your face painted as a Catrina at the Family Fiesta and get ready to dance the night away!
