día de los muertos community celebration
A major highlight of our fall season is our cultural education and Día de los Muertos altar construction programs in Calistoga and St. Helena classrooms and annual Día de los Muertos community celebration. Over 500 people attend!
Our annual “Día de los Muertos” celebration is held at the Napa Valley College Upper Valley Campus in St. Helena. This magical event is a mighty collaborative effort between Nimbus Arts and the UpValley Family Centers. It is an amazing cultural tradition; a wonderful chance to share in community altar exhibits, special art installations, music, dance, wonderful culinary delights, historical displays, and free traditional crafts for the whole family.
We are grateful to the City of St. Helena and the Damian Maldonado Memorial Foundation for their support of our Día programs.
