San Rafael’s 35th Annual Día de los Muertos celebration will again include a car procession/cruise downtown San Rafael on Saturday, October 21st at 3:00 pm. Now an annual part of the celebration, the car procession/cruise extends the celebration allowing people to view the decorated cars while looking at altars in downtown business windows. It also serves as a reminder of the traditional celebration two weeks later at the Albert J. Boro Community on November 4, 2023. The car procession will end in the parking lot at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Tamalpais where we encourage participants to display their cars while music and food will be available at the Multicultural Center of Marin.

The Día de los Muertos celebration comes from the ancient wisdom of the indigenous people of Mezzo and South America that through the years has been open to many spiritual influences of this ever-developing world and changing universe we live in. The multicultural community of the Canal Neighborhood hosts the celebration and welcomes residents and visitors to share in a grateful acknowledgment of the continuing ebb and flow of existence in ways we do not understand.
