Dating back hundreds of years, Día de los Muertos ("Day of the Dead") is celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world. During the multi-day holiday, family and friends gather to honor and celebrate loved ones who have passed away. Traditions include building ofrendas (private altars), enjoying the favorite dishes and drinks of the departed, and visiting graves with mementos of the deceased.

In Los Angeles, Día de los Muertos events take place across the city, from L.A.'s oldest district to museums and a cemetery of the stars. From traditional ceremonies to modern cultural festivals, here are the best Día de los Muertos events in Los Angeles.
