El Tapete de la Muerte Festival in Guanajuato

Each year, on November 2, the picturesque Mexican town of Guanjauato hosts an amazing festival “El Tapete de la Muerte” (Eng. “Rugs of Death”). This is a one-day event during which artists of all ages and experience, either individually or collectively, pay tribute to the dead and Mexican traditions by covering pedestrian streets of downtown Guanajuato with elaborate carpets made of sawdust, sand, salt, flowers, seeds, beans, rice, and other materials related to the Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos) tradition in Mexico. Participants have 7 hours to complete their ephemeral art – which will be swept away by the following morning. El Tapete de la Muerte is organized by Asociación Civil Manos Unidas de Guanajuato and is opened to foreign participants. Maybe next year, you and your family would like to try your skills?
