Special Events

Dia de los Muertos

This year we were proud to be working in conjunction with the Latino Family Center, Center for Creative Re-use and Circulo Juvenil to host our annual Dia de los Muertos community festival!

Events will take place throughout the community during October and November (more details will be coming soon)

  • Al Servicio de la Comunidad Festival (Spring)
