DAY OF THE ANCESTORS:

FESTIVAL OF MASKS

Leimert Park Day of the Ancestor Festival of the Mask began 8 years ago with the aim to create a multigenerational event where people could come together to honor ancestors, share information and culture from West Africa and the Diaspora. Taking to the streets during the procession symbolizes taking back our streets while the libation and blessing ceremony heal the community.

The next round of workshops will be held in April 2020. If you would like to be notified of other workshop opportunities, click here:
