Dias de los Muertos
3 November @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm| Gold coin
The first – and possibly most important – thing to note is that Dias de los Muertos is not Halloween! Where Halloween originated from an ancient Celtic festival to scare off spirits, Dias de los Muertos is a celebration of lost loved ones. While the name itself does not give it away, the celebration is actually about LIFE…on this weekend it is believed that the vale between life and death is lifted, and that families can once again be reunited to drink, dance, sing and eat. It is a vibrant and fun event spread throughout Mexico, and to a much lesser extent, Australia.
On the 3rd November 2019, Artisans of Australia will be including a Day of the Dead celebration into our Open Studios event, introducing some traditional Mexican Food, face painting, kids activities and more to the studios.
What better way to celebrate life than with an artisans market 🙂
