Please join us on Tuesday, November 2nd as we relaunch To Be Latino Night Market and celebrate Dia De Los Muertos. The market will be open from 5:00 pm – 8:30 pm and will include a special opportunity to participate in creating ofrendas to honor our deceased loved ones. To Be Latino is celebrated in the Outer Sunset on a closed to traffic 37th Avenue between Ortega and Pacheco Street.
To Be Latino @tobelatinomarket is a night market centered around bringing Latino cultures to the Sunset. It aims to create a community space where local vendors, artists, artisans and makers can showcase their
own definitions of what it is To Be Latino. The market is intended to support Latino business owners and the well-being of the Latino community.
If individuals would like their loved one to be included in our ofrenda during our launch event, they can fill out this form. Questions about this event can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We invite you to join us every week starting November 2nd through December 14th! Our event is smoking-free, family-friendly and pet-friendly.
