CELEBRATE DIA DE LOS MUERTOS! Casa de Rosado hosts one of Michigan’s most unique and intimate Dia de los Muertos celebration. Join us for our 2020 virtual Dia de Los Muertos and watch our Facebook page for info on our free sugar skull distribution for kids!
Members of the Dia de Los Muertos Advisory Committee selected 10 households or organizations representative of Casa de Rosado’s social justice initiatives to reflect Lansing’s diverse Chicanx, Latinx and Indigena community to build ofrendas in their homes or organizations. Though we usually fill the gallery with ofrendas, this year we move online as the pandemic is encouraging other forms of community and togetherness while reducing the risk of the virus. Watch for an online version of community ofrendas on our gallery page in October and ofrenda building and sugar skull making videos. Lastley, you’ll want to join us for a Facebook live Dia de Los Muertos celebration on November 2, 2020 as we celebrate the return of our ancestors!
