Day of the Dead | Día de Muertos Festival

Levine Museum of the New South
200 E 7th St.
Charlotte, NC 28202

Free admission

Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a festive time to honor deceased relatives, satirize the living, and entice the spirits to visit with flower-decked altars and offerings of food. One of Mexico’s most distinctive holidays, Day of the Dead, is considered a day of cheerful celebration rather than one of mourning.

The Latin American Coalition’s annual Día de los Muertos celebration is a local, intimate recreation of the Mexican Day of the Dead tradition. This colorful and vibrant event is held at the Levine Museum of the New South in uptown Charlotte and features traditional foods, folkloric arts and crafts, traditional dances, and fun activities for children. This free, all-day celebration is educational and engaging for all ages.

Admission to the festival and museum is free all day and includes admission to Levine Museum of the New South’s exhibits.

Parking is also free at the 7th Street Station parking deck. Tickets can be validated within the museum.
