Dia de los Muertos Community Celebration

  • Mighty Tieton 608 Wisconsin Avenue Tieton, WA, 98947 United States (map)

Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a vibrant community celebration honoring both los muertos and the beauty of life.

Day of the Dead celebrations began in Central America and have roots in indigenous and Catholic traditions. Sweet sugar skulls, bright colors, and bitter-smelling cempazuchitl (calendula) flowers evoke vibrant, ephemeral life and bitter, inevitable death—embracing both.

Each year Tieton Arts & Humanities hosts a celebration and creates a large community altar for everyone to add to. Visitors can bring photos of loved ones, write messages, help decorate, and bring candies or breads. This provides a special opportunity to remember those who are no longer with us.
