Event Details

This October, Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) will mark the 26th anniversary of its beloved El Día de los Muertos celebration with a series of free digital programs honoring Days of the Dead traditions that audiences can enjoy from home, including a virtual community celebration, a virtual field trip for families and students, and a virtual exhibition with highlights from the popular 2019 exhibition ¡El Movimiento Vivo! Chicano Roots of El Día de los Muertos.

On October 30, OMCA will offer a live El Día de los Muertos Virtual Field Trip with performance group Cascada de Flores, a free educational experience designed for school groups and families. In advance of the program, OMCA will release virtual field trip resources in mid-October featuring interviews with Latinx community members and OMCA curators, and a hands-on, screen-free papel picado activity. Visitors can explore the diverse traditions, stories, and indigenous heritage of El Día de los Muertos, while learning how this holiday is a source for cultural strength, healing, and social change.
