About

According to tradition, our loved ones who have passed away can return from the underworld to reunite with their relatives alone for one night a year. We celebrate the day of the dead to receive those we love, we prepare an offering that contains what they enjoyed in life, we put bright flowers to show them the way home and we wait for them with love. For if their memory lives on, they too will live. The day of the dead teaches us that there is no life without death, or death without memory. It is a party with a taste of nostalgia, but after all party.


That´s why Casa Círculo Cultural and collaboration with the Redwood City Parks & Arts Foundation, are proud to bring to you the Eighth Annual Día de los Muertos Celebration on Sunday, November 4th, 2018 in Downtown Redwood City.


Courthouse Square is transformed into a play, where musicians, dancers, artists, family altars are on display; sugar skulls, marigolds and more will decorate Courthouse Square and bringing it to life. Catrinas will be walking around the plaza greeting visitors, and a procession will walk through downtown Redwood City. Papel picado adorns the Food Court area with an array of traditional foods and the vendor booths that line the streets. Inside of the San Mateo County History Museum is a FREE exhibition of altars, as well as free arts and crafts for kids where they can create traditional art and enjoy hands on activities.


What started as a modest celebration of the Mexican culture, has grown and evolved into one of Redwood City’s largest celebrations of diversity and culture.

In order to make all this possible, we are looking for energetic volunteers for this experience.

We hope to see you there!
