The Tubac celebration of Día de los Muertos is a glorious event, exuberantly honoring our ancestors and our community. Everyone is welcome to create an ofrenda or altar and these will displayed throughout the community. At Tubac Presidio State Historic Park beginning at 10 AM and running until 4 PM, we’ll have face painting, live music, food vendors with a wonderful variety of offerings, ofrenda exhibits, intention writing, and then a splendid procession will march through the streets of Tubac to the great symbolic bonfire in the Sculpture Garden at the K. Newby Gallery. There will also be music, dancing, food and drink in the Sculpture Garden.
Join us to celebrate Día de los Muertos in a refreshing Tubac way from 10am to 4pm at the Presidio and at the Sculpture Garden from 4:30 until ?. Participants are encouraged to come in costume, have their faces painted and bring mementos of loved ones to memorialize in the parade and at the bonfire. $7.50 adult, $2.00 youth (7-13), except youngsters who bring ofrendas are free. All children (younger than 7) are free.
