Please Support Our Free Traditional Events
Dear friends of Olvera Street
We are asking you to please donate to support traditional events at La Placita Olvera.

You can help provide joy and culture to thousands of children and community members by donating to support Dia de los Muertos 2010.


For 80 years, the Olvera Street Merchants have held free traditional events such as Dia de los Muertos, Posadas, Fiesta de las Flores, Blessing of the Animals, and many more.

For the 2009-2010 year the merchants had 100% of our funding for events cut. We have worked tirelessly to persuade city leaders that free arts and cultural events at Olvera Street are important and that funding should be restored.

Because of broad community support and community donations—as well as the donations of unpaid labor by many artists—we have been able to continue some of our events. In addition, we have been promised that our events budget will be restored in 2011.

However, we do not have a contract for our events yet, and this means that Dia de los Muertos 2010 does not have funding yet.

We are asking you to please give what you can to SAVE FREE CULTURAL EVENTS and DIA DE LOS MUERTOS!
