After careful consideration for the safety of our staff and guests, the Center’s building is remaining closed to visitors until it is safe. However, we have lots of activities and virtual fun for you to check out! We hope to welcome you in the building again soon, but until then, scroll down for our activities and virtual opportunities below!
VIRTUAL DAY OF THE DEAD FESTIVAL
FESTIVAL DEL DIA DE LOS MUERTOS
OCTOBER 5 – NOVEMBER 6

The Day of the Dead Festival is a true community event bringing together individuals, groups, students, and teachers from the Latino and non-Latino communities. Join the virtual celebration and experience the rich traditions of this holiday that is celebrated in Mexico and parts of Central and South America. Due to the pandemic and for the safety of friends and neighbors, we will be celebrating with a virtual exhibition, the public outdoor viewing of ofrendas displayed inside our Glo Gallery, virtual storytelling and more!
Want to participate?
The LASC is doing something very different as opposed to hosting its on-site ofrenda/altar installations at the Old Episcopal Burying Ground during its annual Day of the Dead Festival…
This year, YOU can create an ofrenda for Day of the Dead at home, photograph it, and send your image to be posted on the LASC’s Virtual Ofrendas/Altars for Day of the Dead.
Create an ofrenda/altar for a departed family member, friend, or historical figure. Learn more here: Virtual Ofrenda Altar Project
