The Inland Empire Dia De Los Muertos events are approaching and we couldn’t be more excited! Although celebrated in many cultures, Día de los Muertos, is an important Mexican holiday honoring deceased loved ones. It is celebrated every year as the holy days of All Saints Day and All Souls Day (November 1st and 2nd). On All Soul’s Day, adults who have died are honored through altars displaying their favorite foods, drinks, personal belongings, flowers, candles, and incense. The rituals surrounding Día de los Muertos have been practiced by Mexican Natives for thousands of years.

It’s no secret that there’s a large Latin culture and Hispanic pride in the Inland Empire. We have the perfect events to get you in the Dia De Los Muertos spirit. We’re excited to celebrate and honor the culture with our Dia De Los Muertos painting classes! We have a Black-Light Paint & Puff scheduled for Halloween. This is one you won’t want to miss! We’ve painted several different types of Dia De Los Muertos paintings but the one that seems to be the most popular is “Dia De La Frida“. We’ve already had three dates sell out so for those of you that missed getting tickets we’ve re-scheduled it for our new venue in Downtown Riverside at Retro Taco. Join us on November 19th to paint Dia De La Frida.
