Day of the Dead Performances
Live on the Main Stage under the Pavilions, Evergreen Brick Works, Oct 30, 2022 starting at 11am.
At Evergreen's Day of the Dead Celebration, the Pavilions will be buzzing with an exciting array of music, dance and storytelling. These performances contribute to Evergreen's placemaking agenda by bringing communities together to learn and share Día de Muertos customs and to celebrate this multicultural country.
The performances are an installation of Evergreen's Cultural Performing Arts Series, presented by Bank of America.
We strive to contribute to our society by educating our communities artistically and to make our society feel proud of living in a country where all cultures are welcome. We celebrate the richness of cultural diversity within the society and reaffirm community and culture.
