Build An Altar


October 24, 2021
October 29, 2021

Things can be dropped off at the museum starting Sunday October 24, and altar building will take place on Saturday October 30, starting at 10 am. Altars can be viewed Saturday, October 30th– Sunday, November 7th.

In celebration of Día de los Muertos, the Museum of Ventura County invites our community members to contribute mementos, photos, drawings, poetry, or other items to be included in the large outdoor altar that will be erected at the Museum of Ventura County and Agriculture Museum in Santa Paula. Please note that these items are non-returnable, so it is recommended that you make copies and keep your originals. These items cannot be returned under any circumstance. We apologize for any inconvenience.

The timing for the altar’s creation will be Sunday, October 24th- Friday, 29th. Altars can be viewed Saturday, October 30th– Sunday, November 7th. If you are interested in volunteering to create an altar on your own or collaboratively, please contact ebrokaw@venturamuseum.org

Community members who plan on creating altars in their homes are encouraged to submit images to submissions@venturamuseum.org. The Museum will share these images on the Museum’s website and various social media platforms. You can also use the hashtag #MVCDDLM2021 when posting your own photos on Facebook and Instagram.
