Dia de Muertos NDG
“Dia de muertos NDG” is a festival we hold every year in collaboration with “Café 92”, “la Ruche d’art NDG”, “Bienvenue NDG”, and the local Mexican community. Every year on November 3rd, participants are invited to take part in the festivities: traditional altar decoration, the exhibition of artists’ work, Mexican music, and the eating of Pan de Muerto. Thanks to this free and open activity, local communities have the opportunity to have an authentic Mexican experience and to discover the richness of Mexican culture.
Participants are invited to discuss and discover their various beliefs about life and death, as well as the ways they honour their dead. Dialogue such as this helps to bridge cultures as it enables members of the community to familiarize themselves with different views and beliefs, and discuss something that affects everyone. Discussions like these create mutual understandings that encourage open-mindedness and social cohesion in the long term.
We have created the hashtag #DiademuertosNDG specifically for this celebration, in order to encourage participants to share their experience on social media. Additionally, the event is filmed and a promotional video will be posted to commemorate the celebration. If you wish to participate in the organization of this event as a partner or sponsor, or if you wish to procure a kiosk as a vendor, please contact Pilar Hernandez at or by phone at 514-657-4430.
