From Our Sponsors

Day of the Dead Celebration
All Ages
More info: Facebook

Cargo will hold its 21st Day of the Dead celebration Sunday, November 5, 2017, from 4 pm to 8 pm, at its retail space at 81 SE Yamhill St, Portland, 97214. Beverages and traditional Mexican treats will be offered and a crafts table available for children to make Day of the Dead altar flowers and decorate sugar skulls, and two Tarot card readers on the lower level. The party is free of charge.

For 21 years, Cargo has drawn standing-room-only crowds for its Day of the Dead parties. Children dress as Frida Kahlo, and community members from artists to local politicians show up to add a memento to our annual Day of the Dead altar, a 20-foot-wide, 15-foot-tall work of art. This year, the altar integrates the pipes and pedals of a 1920s pipe organ as well as handmade decorations and traditional Mexican altar ornaments.

The Day of the Dead (Dia de Muertos) is an annual, multi-day Mexican holiday to honor the dead. Celebrants often build altars to friends and family who have passed away and decorate the altars with photos, marigolds, incense, and gifts. At Cargo, we invite customers to leave mementos of their loved ones, and it’s not unusual for our altars to hold everything from photos to tennis shoes and dog tags.

This year Cargo will auction a colorful Chiapas Girls Folklorico Traditional Fiesta dress to benefit Kids-Heal (www.kids-heal.org), a non-profit organization providing art therapy and supportive services to children living with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.

Also, Sunday, November 5, is the last day of the exhibit Cargo is hosting of the work of Portlander and noted Malian artist and storyteller, Baba Wagué Diakité.
