Sunday Sessions 2021 @ Grand Park Performance Lawn (Between Grand Ave and Hill Street)
Aug 29 @ 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Dance and music are the centerpiece for every hot summer party and Grand Park’s Sunday Sessions returns live in the park! Grand Park’s Sunday Sessions will host L.A.’s finest House music curators on two Sundays this summer featuring numerous DJs at each event. This popular series of free outdoor dance parties will celebrate the contributions of Los Angeles artists to the American-originated, globally embraced art form of House music. The July 25th Sunday Sessions will feature Astronomar, Bot, Ocean Roulette, Etari, and Chloé Soleta, and celebrate the pillars of House music rooted in joy, liberation and dance.

The August 29th event will honor the sounds that served as a precursor to House and dance music with a day dedicated to Northern Soul, Funk and Disco with artists including Deejay Clifton, Liz O., Riley More and LoopdropKid. Guests can picnic or purchase food from food trucks and enjoy the sounds of summer in a beautiful setting right in the heart of Downtown L.A. Sunday Sessions will take place on the park’s Performance Lawn, just north of Hill Street.

Soundcheck: 2pm – 3pm

Loopdropkid: 3pm – 4pm

Riley More: 4pm – 5pm

Downtown Dia De Los Muertos 2021 @ Grand Park
Oct 22 – Nov 2 all-day

Grand Park pays tribute to the cultural tradition of Día de los Muertos—Day of the Dead—with a 12-day public art installation taking place from October 22 through November 2, 2021. The ninth annual Grand Park’s Downtown Día de los Muertos honors people, places and ideas that merit reverence and commemoration through free, family-friendly programming. Presented in
partnership with Self Help Graphics & Art, Grand Park’s Downtown Día de los Muertos is a community-oriented space inviting park-goers to contribute to the community altar, created by 2018 NEA National Heritage Fellow Ofelia Esparza, and to stroll through the park to view 20 altars made by professional artists and local community organizations, including East Los Angeles Women’s Center, Community Power Collective and Eastside LEADS, among others. The large, artistic altars will be spaced safely to enhance public engagement and maximize social distancing among guests. A major highlight will be the return of the annual Noche de Ofrenda (“Night of the Offerings”) in-person ceremony on Saturday, October 23, 2021, at 7:00 p.m., featuring a performance by Danza Divina de Los Angeles with special guest and legacy danzante
General Lazaro Arvizu, as well as free LACMA led calavera (“skull”) art workshops inspired by Aztec art, open to all ages. Noche de Ofrenda is a contemplative ceremony and night of reflection that connects communities to traditions and highlights indigenous practices during a contemporary celebration. Parkgoers must wear face coverings when attending the Noche de Ofrenda event.


Grand Park’s Downtown Día de los Muertos Activities:

Grand Park’s Día de los Muertos Altars and Art Installations
October 22–November 2, 2021
5:30 a.m.–10:00 p.m. (normal park hours of operation)
Location: Grand Park (between Grand Avenue and Hill Street)
Guests can experience, hear and learn about the traditions of Día de los Muertos and stroll through largescale altar and art installations located throughout Grand Park, curated by Self Help Graphics, including the annual community altar created by maestra Ofelia Esparza and her family. An artist and educator, Esparza continues to be instrumental in preserving and conserving the Día de los Muertos tradition in Los Angeles, and the community altar in Grand Park creates an opportunity for Angelenos to contribute their own personal ofrendas and mementos to honor a passed loved one. All personally and culturally relevant to Los Angeles, the 20 altar installations create a connection of vital community issues, critical leaders and loved ones that are important to Angelenos. This year’s altars will include an homage to the late Chicana activist, author and community organizer, Betita Martínez, as well as altars honoring the LGBTQ community and the loss of community resources during the pandemic. To deepen appreciation and provide context of the public art installations, Grand Park will offer attendees the option of listening to pre-recorded audio guides with insights from the artists to complement altar viewing. Park-goers can access the storytelling through Grand Park’s digital channels.

Noche de Ofrenda
October 23, 2021
7:00 p.m.–9:00 p.m.
Location: Grand Park Performance Lawn (Near Hill Street)
Suspended last year due to the pandemic, the traditional Noche de Ofrenda ceremony honoring the dead returns to Grand Park as a live event and performance. A co-presentation by Grand Park and Self Help Graphics, the joint event of reflection and remembrance will feature a communal circle and blessing led by the indigenous community and also include poetry and dance. In a continued partnership with Grand Park, LACMA will host two family-friendly arts-based workshops dedicated to making personalized calavera—one of the most recognizable cultural and artistic elements of the Day of the Dead festivities. Each 20-minute workshop held throughout Noche de Ofrenda will engage kids to create their own calavera using air dry clay, paper plates and other craft items as LACMA teaching artists show park-goers how to sculpt, shape and transform ordinary materials into colorful Día de Los Muertos artworks. LACMA will also host a “Tree of Life” in Grand Park encouraging park-goers to write the name of a passed loved one on a colorful ribbon; the name and ribbon will remain placed on the tree in remembrance for the duration of Grand Park’s Downtown Día de los Muertos.
