Burien’s annual ‘Día de los Muertos’ will be held on Friday night, Nov. 3, 2023 at the Burien Community Center.

This FREE event – which will run from 6 – 9 p.m. – is open to the entire community, and celebrates the tradition of honoring and remembering our ancestors and families.

This event celebrates the “Day of the Dead,” a holiday traditionally celebrated on Nov. 1–2. It is widely observed in Mexico, where it largely developed, and is also observed in other places, especially by people of Mexican heritage.

At this event you’ll experience:

  • Altars & Offerings to the departed
  • Arts & Crafts
