Community organized events at Monarch in November:

Dia de Los Muertos at the Monarch

From now to Friday, hours vary, free

The five-day celebration of Latin culture, community inclusion and the arts – Dia de Los Muertos at The Monarch – began Monday with the opening of a community altar dedicated to COVID-19 victims and continues with free events throughout the week thanks to the generous support of RAMP, Ogden City Arts, Utah Arts & Museums, WESTAF / NEA and other partners. “A real community engagement and a real partnership” is what the event organizer Cirilo Franco strived to do for the celebration. “I wanted to organize an event in Ogden that would attract the Latino community, because a lot of art events in town are not aimed at this under-represented community,” he said. Coming up is the Ogden City School District student art and music showcase on Wednesday, the Latino Film Fest Thursday and a Friday night concert presented by OFOAM with Mariachi Aguilas de La Esperanza, Las Cafeteras and the Ballet Folklorico of the WSU.
