About

SHG's Noche de Ofrenda will again be held in partnership with Grand Park on Saturday, October 29, 2016. Located between City Hall and The Music Center, Grand Park is at the heart of Downtown Los Angeles and offers their land for our offerings once a year on la Noche de Ofrenda. Led by premier altar-maker and community resident, Ofelia Esparza, participants are invited to place their newly created offerings or those brought from home together to create a community altar to display throughout our Dia de Los Muertos festivities.

The tradition of making altars to honor our ancestors and passed loved ones serves as a way for the community to contribute their memories with special tokens of remembrance. Poetry readings, Pan de Muerto and Xocolatl will also be served as a part of this special evening.

Volunteer positions include general set up, break down, handling refreshments, help with Altars, and distribution of traditional Pan de Muerto to the public.
