El Día de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead, is one of the most important celebrations in Mexico and Latin America. The festivals, known for their colorful decorations, energetic music, and elaborate displays, demonstrate the culture’s strong sense of love and respect for ancestors while celebrating the continuance of life.
Each year, Cheekwood brings the traditions of Mexico and Latin America to Nashville with a festival that includes traditional music and dance, vibrant art activities, and authentic cuisine. Visitors will learn about the culture of our Latin American neighbors while exploring beautiful altar displays and shopping in the marketplace.
