What: The festival is a 10-day celebration consisting of:
- Workshops: The Day of the Dead Festival is designed to remember and honor the dead through artistic expressions and a procession honoring the dead. The festival begins with a series of workshops for those who want to express their feelings through creative activities. The workshop series includes print and mask making, “sugar skull” decorating, and tin art.
- Procession: The festival culminates with the Day of the Dead Procession down Commercial St through town. The Procession is a belief in the power of creativity to help grieve the loss of loved ones – whether friend, family member, partner, spouse, co-worker, animal companion or cultural hero.
- Celebration: After the procession, the festival will continue with events at Provincetown Theater.
