The Tacoma Art Museums virtual Día de los Muertos celebration (which kicks off on Halloween and lasts through November 15) is one of many opportunities in the Northwest to share your own commemorative altar this year.

EverOut is The Mercury's new website devoted to things to do in Portland and across the Pacific Northwest. It has all the same things you're used to seeing from Mercury EverOut, just in a new spot!


The first day of November marks the beginning of Día de los Muertos, the Mexican holiday when people honor loved ones who have died by bringing them to life with colorful ofrendas (altars) adorned with memorabilia and calaveras (sugar skulls), and taking part in many other traditions. Though many events have moved online, there are still lots of opportunities to learn more about the holiday through performances, food, music, and more—from a Milagro Theater fundraiser to the Mercado Pop-Up in Portland. Find all the ways to celebrate in the Pacific Northwest below and on our Portland Día de los Muertos calendar.

Events are online unless otherwise noted.
