Grand Park and Self Help Graphics & Art (SHG) are proud to present the annual commemoration of Noche de Ofrenda (Night of Altars) on Saturday, October 26, from 7–9 p.m. at Grand Park in downtown Los Angeles.
Noche de Ofrenda is a free, family-friendly experience and part of a suite of events taking place during the season of Día de los Muertos, both at Self Help Graphics & Art and Grand Park. The event will feature a large-scale community altar produced by National Endowment Fellow and L.A. icon Ofelia Esparza and the Esparza family, live entertainment by CAVA, Danza Divina de Los Angeles, and Tierra Blanca Baile Folklorico, and more than 30 altars produced by artists and community organizations, and an indigenous blessing.
Noche de Ofrenda is a contemplative ceremony and night of reflection that connects communities to traditions and highlights indigenous practices during a contemporary celebration. This is part of a long-standing tradition that honors our ancestors and highlights issues facing our community through the ancient tradition of Día de los Muertos,” said SHG Executive Director, Betty Avila.
