Dia De Los Muertos - Panteón

The Sacramento Latino Center of Art and Culture will honor Día de los Muertos with its 7th annual el panteón (the name refers to a cemetery in the Spanish language). The two-day event will host local artists selling handmade Mexican art, including silver jewelry, beaded necklaces and hand-painted glassware, along with paintings and sculptures of traditional sugar skulls. Individuals and families can reserve one of 40 altars to set up photos, candles, paintings and food in honor of their loved ones. The Center will also display a community altar to recognize Juan Gabriel, a popular Mexican singer-songwriter who died in August. Free. Sat. 11 a.m.-1 a.m; Sun. 8 a.m.-6 p.m.
