Breaking from Halloween for Day of the Dead

Published on: October 28, 2019


Santa Monica celebrates Day of the Dead (Dia de Los Muertos) at Woodlawn Cemetery, Mortuary & Mausoleum, which is wholly owned and operated by the City of Santa Monica. One of the few municipally-owned cemeteries in California was purchased by the city in 1897 (the mausoleum was acquired in 1972.) It is considered one of the city’s most important historical resources. Check it out at the annual celebration of the cycle of life and remembrance of ancestors on November 2, 2019.

While Day of the Dead is normally celebrated in November, celebrations have already happened this year in more than a dozen cities, while one event was postponed in Healdsburg due to fire evacuations. Others in fire danger areas may also be impacted.
