Día De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead in English) is a vibrant celebration that honors the circle of life, reuniting the living with dead. This time-honored tradition—rooted in centuries of history—merges ancient and colonial traditions with folk customs and spiritual beliefs, and it serves as a poignant and symbolic tradition for Mexican and Latin American communities to honor loved ones who have passed away.

Embracing the traditions and celebrations in our community, TAM has established a tradition of hosting an annual Día De Los Muertos festival for the past 19 years.

We invite you to join us on November 5 from 12-5pm for our annual Día de Los Muertos festival. Open to the public free of charge, this event will feature community ofrendas, live music by Trío Guadalevín, and captivating dance performances by Ballet Folklórico and CeAtl Tonalli, Danza Azteca. You’ll also have the opportunity to engage in various art projects, taking home handmade marigolds, miniature ofrendas, and clay sculptures as mementos of the celebration. !
