One of the largest festivals in Tucson, the All Souls Procession is celebrated annually in the first weekend of November. Inspired by the Mexican Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), thousands of people in vibrant costumes gather to acknowledge the deceased and the 'grand mystery' of death. Experience the Fine Art Photography Exhibition, the Evolving Community Altar, the Dance of the Dead, and the Procession of Little Angels. On Sunday evening the All Souls Procession snakes through the historic Fourth Avenue of Tucson to the culmination of the festival, the Grand Finale where a large urn filled with the hopes and offerings to those who have passed is burnt.

Venue: Downtown Tucson

Date: 1-3 November 2018
