Altar Makers Wanted for the
5th annual Viva La Vida
Dia De Los Muertos Fesitval –
Santa Ana Es Un Pueblo Magico!

Take part in this unforgettable community event by participating as an altar builder. We invite you to build an altar dedicated to a loved one or to bring awareness to a social issue.

Being an altar maker is a beautiful experience however it is also a big responsibility. Please enlist the help of family and friends, as it is a long day. We request that altar builders commit to attending to their altar until breakdown time of 10 pm.

Every effort is made to make this experience as enjoyable and memorable as possible. To cover the cost associated with trash generated by the altars, we do request a $25 donation to reserve your space as an altar maker.
