Along with performances that range from Colombian dancers to a Mariachi band, the program will include light festive bites donated from Taqueria Mi Pueblito in Hampton Bays.

Upon entry, guests will be met with an authentic Día De Los Muertos altar constructed by Mexican artist Filiberto Perez. Guests are encouraged to bring gifts and offerings for the altar to honor their late loved ones.

The program will be held on the Main Floor and feature performances from Grupo Folklórico Xochipli, a Mexican dance group whose goal is to elevate and showcase Mexican folk culture and ensure that traditional dance is passed down to future generations.
