Arcade Lane Celebration

Mercadito Monarca & Playhouse Village continue the cultural tradition of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration, bringing the community together to honor and celebrate those who have passed away. Join us for these free, family-friendly programs.

See Arcade Lane transform into a beautiful Mexican Zócalo where you can hear music and see live performances featuring Aztec dance, ballet folklorico, mariachi, DJ set by La Junta and more. Families can also enjoy arts & crafts activities, tour an altar exhibit in the neighborhood, shop our artisan market, see chalk artists at work, play fun games, and more.

From October 24 - November 3, there will also be an alters exhibit in Arcade Lane and the streets of El Molino and Mentor Ave.

Boston Court Celebration

Boston Court joins the Playhouse Village and Mercadito Monarca in celebration of Día de los Muertos with live performances in their parking lot from Manny Giella and his band and youth slam poets from Get Lit.

As part of the celebration, Boston Court will have an ofrenda created by a local artist Denise Esparza, dedicated to loved ones lost by our community. If you have someone you wish to honor, we’d love to hear about them. Submit stories and/or photos here.
