El Dia De Los Muertos

The annual downtown Day of the Dead Celebration takes place the last week of October and first week of November. U of L faculty and students from many departments and programs collaborate with museums, such as the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft, the Frazier International History Museum, the Louisville Science Center, and the Muhammad Ali Center, among others. Faculty, students, museum staff and members of the community erect altars to pay tribute to the deceased according to Hispanic traditions.
