Route: The Harbor Hotel to The Provincetown Theater 

The Procession, designed to remember and honor the dead through artistic expressions, is an integral part of Provincetown’s Day of the Dead Festival.

At the heart of the Procession is a belief in the power of creativity to help grieve the loss of loved ones – whether friend, family member, partner, spouse, co-worker, animal companion or cultural hero.

In Mexico, El Día de los Muertos processions include many art forms, such as face-painting, wearing a mask and/or costume, carrying skeleton puppets, playing instruments, singing, dancing and carrying signs, candles or photos of loved ones.

Provincetown’s Procession will include all these traditional elements and more.
All art forms welcome and encouraged!

The Procession is free and all are welcome.
No registration needed – but arrive early for free face-painting & festivities!

The Procession will start promptly at 5:30pm on Thursday, November 2.
Face-painting, stilt-walking, drumming and other festivities begin at 4:30pm.

The Procession will begin at The Harbor Hotel, travel west on Commercial Street, turn onto Hancock Street and end at The Provincetown Theater.

Once at the Theater, come inside to view the Ofrenda Exhibition and feed your soul.
