Take part in this unforgettable community event by participating as an altar builder in the FIFTH annual Viva La Vida Dia De Los Muertos Festival in beautiful downtown Santa Ana on Saturday, October 26, 2019.
Build an altar dedicated to a loved one or to bring awareness to a social issue.
Being an altar maker is a big responsibility and we strongly suggest enlisting the help of family and friends, as it is a long day. Altar Builders must commit to attending to their altar until 10 pm.
Altars can generate a lot of trash and we do ask for a $25 donation to reserve your altar space to help cover these costs. Please make your check payable to Calacas Inc. Checks can be dropped off at Suavecito HQ (located at 2831 W 1st St) or mailed to Viva La Vida c/o Altar Builder PO Box 2115 Santa Ana CA 92707.
Applications and donations must be received no later than October 20th. Reservations are given on a first come, first-served basis and we do anticipate that Altar spaces will fill up. For additional info, please contact Jessica Arambula
•Space allotted per altar is an 8 x 8 foot area (about 1 1/2 parking stall). If you require more space, please let us know before the day of the event.
