Hollywood Forever’s 20th annual Dia de los Muertos celebration will take place on Saturday November 2nd, 2019. This year, our guiding theme is the Monarch Butterfly and its winter home, the Mexican state of Michoacán. Michoacán is also one of the two cultural heartlands in Mexico where the ancient traditions of Dia de los Muertos have been celebrated the longest and most vibrantly.
We also embrace the Monarch butterfly as a symbol of Dreamers and Immigrants whose personal journeys echo the annual migrations the butterflies make between Mexico and the U.S. The Monarch’s pending inclusion on the Endangered Species list is also an urgent call to love and protect our shared earth. As we celebrate our 20th Anniversary at Hollywood Forever, we share our gratitude for the beautiful migration of Dia de los Muertos from its homeland of Michoacán to the heart of Hollywood.
