Provincetown’s 1st Annual Day of the Dead Performing Arts Festival is a community event honoring life and death through art. Inspired by the Mexican traditions of El Día de los Muertos, the Festival includes art workshops, a Day of the Dead procession, an ofrenda exhibition and an evening of performance art.
The intention of the Festival is to recognize and honor the Mexican and Mesoamerican roots of El Día de los Muertos while simultaneously creating a community event that is unique to the lived lives of Provincetown residents and other Festival participants.
The goal of the Festival is to provide the Provincetown community with an opportunity to come together to celebrate the lives and honor the deaths of those we love. For in addition to our experiences of personal loss, to live in Provincetown is to share a communal history and experience of life and death.
The Festival provides us with an artistic avenue to express our grief while simultaneously celebrating life and honoring death.
The Provincetown Day of the Dead Performing Arts Festival is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit community event.
