Go Metro to Downtown Día de los Muertos at Grand Park

Grand Park pays tribute to the cultural tradition of Día de los Muertos — Day of the Dead — with Downtown Día de los Muertos, a 12-day public art installation taking place from Oct. 22 through Nov. 2, 2021. Stroll through the park to view 20 altars made by professional artists and local community organizations. The altars can be viewed any time during park hours.

This year also marks the return of Noche de Ofrenda (“Night of the Offerings”), an in-person ceremony taking place Saturday, Oct. 23 at 7 p.m. The evening will feature a performance by Danza Divina de Los Angeles with special guest and legacy danzante General Lazaro Arvizu, as well as free LACMA-led calavera (“skull”) art workshops.

The event is open to all ages. Parkgoers must wear face coverings when attending Noche de Ofrenda.

Go Metro to Grand Park by taking the B Line (Red) or D Line (Purple) to Civic Center/Grand Park Station. Multiple bus lines also stop around the park, we recommend using Transit app to plan your trip. Or ride to the park with Metro Bike Share! As a reminder, masks are required on Metro.
