Annual Day of the Dead Celebration: A free community celebration of Mexico’s El Día de los Muertos

November 3 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

The Arts Council of Princeton and the Princeton Shopping Center present the annual Day of the Dead Celebration on Saturday, November 3 from 3-5 pm. Join us in celebration of Mexico’s El Día de los Muertos with strolling mariachis, sugar skull decorating, face painting, folk arts and crafts, and more! Learn about the traditions of this rich cultural holiday at the free, family-friendly event.

Day of the Dead is observed throughout the world at this time of year (in connection with Halloween and All Souls’ Day), where family and friends gather to remember and honor those who have died. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars using sugar skulls, marigolds, and favorite foods of the deceased, and then visiting graves with these as gifts. This free community event is made possible through the generosity of EDENS/ Princeton Shopping Center.

The Day of the Dead event will take place at the Princeton Shopping Center Courtyard at 301 N. Harrison Street, Princeton, NJ. Ample parking is available at the Shopping Center.
