As part of a collaborative partnership, Sol Collective and the Sacramento History Museum and Alliance are proud to invite the community to participate in a series of free cultural workshops in October plus experience a traditional and large-scale Day of the Dead ceremony highlighted by altar building, Aztec dance, sugar skulls, and more.
Since 2011, Sol Collective has worked to bring the ancient tradition of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) to the Sacramento community. Shrouded in mysticism for many
Americans, Day of the Dead is a Mexican tradition celebrating and honoring the lives of relatives and ancestors past. Sol Collective’s annual Souls of the City festival and cultural arts programming offer hands-on education about the deep-rooted history and traditions of Dia de los Muertos.
Sol Collective as well as the Sacramento History Museum and Alliance believe that it is through open education and sharing of cultures that respect, understanding, and equity are cultivated. Community members of all ethnicities and socioeconomic backgrounds are encouraged to come out, learn the history, and participate in honoring their loved ones passed.
