Día de Muertos Celebration at JUMP

November 2 @ 5:00 pm 8:00 pm MDT

JOIN US FOR DÍA DE MUERTOS CELEBRATION AT JUMP!

Jump is excited to once again host Día de Muertos, or Day of the Dead on Wednesday, November 2nd from 5-8pm.

Día de Muertos honors the lives of friends and family who have died, with food, drink, parties, and activities the deceased enjoyed in life.

This holiday is celebrated with a burst of color and life-affirming joy as those who have passed are kept alive in memory and spirit. This ancient tradition is based on the unity of life and death, and the belief that the dead would be insulted by sadness.

DIA DE MUERTOS EVENT: WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 2nd

Entertainment and local dignitaries will open the celebration on the outdoor stage in the JUMP Park and will feature entertainers of all ages in colorful outfits and painted faces. List of performers below.

Pan de Muerto and Mexican cocoa will be served.

Catrin and Catrina Contest will be set during the event on the JUMP stage, with prizes for the best outfits. Come dressed up!

The centerpiece of Día de Muertos is the Altar, which welcomes spirits with offerings that include photographs, food, marigold flowers, and candles. Altars created by local families, students and organizations will be on display throughout the lobby.

Along with cultural short films playing on our Share Studio monitors, including “La Noria,” “Lluvia en los Ojos,” and “Ramona” in collaboration with the Mexican Consulate.
