Day of the Dead:

Casa Oaxaca
2106 18th Street Northwest
Tuesday, October 23rd
5:00pm – 11:00pm | FREE!

Celebrate this charming, mysterious and colorful holiday. We at Casa Oaxaca will be making our own Altar de Muertos (a traditional home altar to honor our dearly departed). Come and check out the display in our front window! It will be available from Oct 23rd to Nov 2nd.
Altars are made for the souls of the loved ones who have passed on. Though each altar is unique to each person, the premise is to honor the loved ones and welcome them back to this earth. Altars contain many different items such as marigolds, food, Mezcal & Tequila, pictures of the ones who are gone, sugar skulls, chocolate, incense, etc.

Bring your own decoration and experience this amazing tradition the way its done in OAXACA.
