Tucson All Souls Procession Weekend 2021
Tucson’s Dia de Los Muertos-inspired event is a beloved community-powered fixture of the city’s fall calendar since 1990.
Myriad altars, performers, installation art, and creatives of all kinds collaborate for almost half the year to prepare their costumes and offerings for this amazing event that draws roughly 150,000 participants in early November.
The All Souls Procession is one of the most important, inclusive and authentic public ceremonies in North America. The Procession began in 1990 with a ceremonial performance piece created by local artist Susan Johnson. Johnson was grieving the passing of her father, and as an artist, she found solace in a creative, celebratory approach to memorializing him. Says Johnson, “From the beginning, it was different people’s ethnic groups, different cultures, but also it was all these different art forms put together.”
After that first year, many artists were inspired to continue, growing the Procession into its modern incarnation. Today the streets of downtown Tucson are transformed into a two-mile human-powered procession that ends in the ceremonial burning of a large Urn filled with the hopes, offerings and wishes of the public for those who have passed.
- The procession begins at 6th Avenue and 7th Street in downtown Tucson on Sunday. Participants will begin gathering at 4pm. and the procession begins at 6.30pm It culminates with the ritual burning of the urn at the finale ceremony near Mercado San Agustin at Linda Avenue and Congress Street. It is a procession, not a parade, meaning everyone is welcome to become part of the event rather than simply spectating.
