Day of the Dead Community Altar at Experienced Goods

14th Annual Day of the Dead Celebration and Community Altar on November 4th

The 14th Annual Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) Celebration and Community Altar will take place during November Gallery Walk, November 4th, from 5:00-7:00 at Experienced Goods Thrift Shop, 77 Flat St. in Brattleboro. Inspired by the Latin American holiday when families gather to honor loved ones who have died, staff and volunteers from Brattleboro Area Hospice create an Ofrenda, or large community altar. You’re invited to bring an item to lay on the Ofrenda to honor a loved one.

(Please use photocopied pictures and objects of no great concern since items cannot be returned.)

Colorful papers and pens will be available to write memorial notes to leave on the altar. This celebration can be a way for children especially, to express a connection with and memories of a loved one who has died. Light refreshments will be offered. For more information contact Brattleboro Area Hospice at 257-0775 or email connie.baxter@brattleborohospice.org
