The Panteón de Sacramento (Sacramento's Cemetery) is a two day event which is an urban re-creation of Día de los Muertos that takes place in small village cemeteries throughout Mexico. Over 60 ofrendas (memorials) made by famlies and organizations, 40 vendors, food, sugar skulls and mask making and live programming! This year we will be adding a procession where we close off three blocks of Midtown Sacramento to celebrate and honor our ancestors.
