Our Youth Program site at MetWest High School has jigsawed, sanded, painted, recorded audio with KDOL to produce a dynamic exhibit for “Rituals and Remembrance” at the Oakland Museum of California

We hope you can join our young artists in celebration of ancestry and expression!

The popular annual community celebration will feature main stage performances ranging from contemporary popular music to folkloric dance, Mariachi to Aztec dance. Performers include Ballet Folklorico Paqueyollotzin of Petaluma, Mariachi Luz de Oro de Berkeley, Quenepas (Puerto Rican Bomba youth ensemble), and dynamic up and coming band Soltrón. The celebration starts out with a welcoming ritual that leads a procession into the OMCA Garden led by members of the Días de los Muertos Committee and Danza In Xochitl In Cuicatl. Community-created altars throughout the building and the garden will pay homage to loved ones lost.

An artisanal mercado will highlight the OMCA Store and local vendors featuring traditional and contemporary apparel, craft, artwork, and food, including a panadero (baker) offering pan de muerto. A selection of festive food highlighting the Bay Area’s diversity of cuisines will be available for purchase from Off the Grid, and Bike East Bay will provide a bike valet service.

Entry includes Museum admission and access to special exhibition Rituals + Remembrance, featuring new and existing work by nine artists and three community organizations celebrating the theme of memorial across cultures.
