Latin American Heritage Month

If you walk east from the Granville Island Food Market, you’ll see a beautiful installation: Altar de Muertos.

Erected for Latin American Heritage Month Festival, this altar is created for Día de Muertos, a celebration in memory of those who have passed. The Altar de Muertos is scheduled to be in Granville Island’s Ocean Art Pavillion Works until November 2nd. On the last day, a community gathering will feature Mexican food, hot chocolate, and live music.

‘We will laugh and cry’, we read, ‘and remember that being alive is a blessing and dead is not the end’.

This 2021 Latin American Heritage Month Festival features a wide range of artist installations, musical performances, Latin American culture education, food markets, and workshops that range from Capoeiera to making Pan (bread) de Muerto.

As you’ll see in the link below, there are plenty of options offered online through Zoom.
