Enjoy a day of cultural exploration during the Atlanta History Center’s annual family program, Day of the Dead or Dia de Muertos. Visitors of all ages enjoy learning about this ancient festival rooted in Mexican heritage and that serves as a way for families to remember their deceased loved ones while celebrating their children and the continuity of life. Smiling faces, swirling brilliant colors, storytelling, and elaborately decorated altars designed to honor lost family and friends, and authentic Mexican food, music, and performances are highlights of this celebration.
The Atlanta History Center has presented this annual family program in collaboration with the Instituto de Mexico and the Mexican Consulate with support by the Fulton County Board of Commissioners under the guidance of the Fulton County Arts Council for more than ten years.
Food and drinks are available for purchase.

TIPS: It is crowded, I suggest leaving the strollers at home because you can’t move around. Bring cash for food and vendors. Get there early, parking fills up fast and you’ll be forced to park on the street and even further away from the building.
