The Chatham Berry Farm is holding their second annual Dia de Los Muertos celebration on Friday, November 1. Dia de Los Muertos – aka Day of the Dead – is a Mexican holiday that is celebrated to honor the memories of loved ones who have passed. It’s becoming increasingly popular and celebrated in the United States & the Chatham Berry Farm wanted to acknowledge & host a special evening at The Greenhouse Cidery to show thanks for the rich history associated with this unique holiday.

The Cidery celebration will include live music from local musicians Scott Stockman & Dan Garcia and homemade Mexican food from Gloria Morales. The fire pit will be lit with free s’mores for all and a community alter (ofrenda) for you to add to if you so choose! Face painting is apart of this holiday, most people paint their face with a calavara (skull) or La Calavera Catrina. Face painting is an option, but not mandatory.

The Cidery bar will have the Berry Farm’s small batch hard ciders, and a selection of NYS craft beer, Tousey Winery wines & local spirits from Grazin’ Spirits & Hillrock Distillery. Non-alcoholic beverages, hot apple cider & apple cider donuts will be available as well!
