This year, Ohio State is partnering with the non-profit Latino Arts for Humanity to celebrate Day of the Dead Columbus. This festival is an educational, cultural, and family event to remember and celebrate our loved ones who are no longer with us. It is also a great opportunity to engage with and support the local Latinx community.
There will be art exhibits, living altar performances, ofrendas, arts and crafts vendors, activities for kids (including free face painting!), calavera poetry workshops, Aztec dance, opportunities to learn about Day of the Dead, and much more!
The event is free and open to the public. Free transportation will be available throughout the day from the Ohio Union (12th Ave loop) to Greenlawn Cemetery. The first bus leaves the Union at 9:30am, with the last bus leaving Greenlawn at 6pm.
