Event Navigation

Come celebrate Día de los Muertos with the Grand Rapids Public Library. Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday that honors family and friends who have passed on. Loved ones come together to build altars that celebrate the life and memory of the dead. This is a time of celebration and joy, filled with talk and memories of those who have died. Altars from members of the community honoring family and friends will be on display. Every altar is unique and taken together to create a fascinating portrait of what the citizens of Grand Rapids hold close to them.

This program is sponsored by the Grand Rapids Public Library Foundation. Please consider a gift today.
