To Our Beloved Marigold Parade Community Members,

The South Valley Muertos y Marigolds Parade and Celebration will not be held in 2019. Since the last parade in 2018, it has become apparent that our event has grown at a rate that we could not have anticipated. Considering the overall attendance at the last event, estimated at up to 17,000, as well as concerns from both the community-at-large and County officials, the Muertos y Marigolds Organizing Committee has had to take a step back to address the issues and rededicate our efforts to the Committee's mission.

Moving forward we will restructure the event in a way that upholds our mission.  The Committee's most important purpose is to promote  non-corporate, grassroots activities rooted in art, culture and political satire.

Communities in Albuquerque and South Valley, in particular, face immense challenges.   These emerging issues include cultural appropriation & gentrification - the processes through which people move into our community and take over its culture, housing, and other economic assets - to the detriment of the people who have lived here for generations.

 This event is presented by our all-volunteer committee of 15 members (on average) from Cambio, La Raza Unida and other individuals. It is a grassroots event, funded by small grants and individual donations. It is not a Bernalillo County event. We only receive in-kind use of the facility from the County. 
 The Organizing Committee seeks to involve more of you, especially the South Valley community, in addressing these issues and in the restructuring of this event.  The Committee will host the art workshops.  We will also be meeting with County officials and Commissioners.  
If you would like to stay up-to-date or get involved in this process, please fill out the form below. Tell us how you would like to be involved in organizing future events.

 If you know others who would like to support the event and become involved but are not on the e-mail or Facebook, you may send a card to  Marigold Parade, 803 La Vega SW, Albuquerque, NM 87105.  We appreciate your continued support and help in getting the word out to the general public. Thank you.
