Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a time to celebrate our deceased loved ones and keep their memories alive. Running since the year 2000, this is the longest-standing Day of the Dead celebration in Colorado and attracts more than 6,000 people annually. Community participation is an essential part of this holiday full of life, reflection, food, family, and fun.
Like last year, the Día de Muertos Family Celebration will open the season in downtown Longmont. This street festival will include music and dance performances, art and craft activities, cultural education, delicious food, downtown business altars, and the Fire House Art Center Gigantes Procession. Park downtown or at the Longmont Museum and take the free shuttle between locations so you can enjoy all the activities of the day.
