Día de los Muertos/Day of the Dead Commemoration Free Outdoor Candle Lighting


Monday, November 1, 2021, 4:00pm to 7:00pm

This event is free but advance registration is required.

Stop by the Peabody Museum for a short moment of personal reflection on the past year which brought losses to so many. The front steps of the museum will be set up as a simple outdoor altar and staff will distribute lighted candles to visitors in observance of those we have lost. Pause and remember as you place your candle in our community display. Post a Message of Love to our online Virtual Altar before attending.

And join us next year when our annual fiesta returns to the Peabody galleries! Rain or shine.

4:00–5:00 pm ET Harvard ID holders only / 4:00–5:00 pm ET Sólo para los titulares de identificación de Harvard

Presented in collaboration with the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology, Harvard University; the Harvard Museums of Science & Culture; and the Consulate General of Mexico in Boston
