The New Orleans Healing Center will partner with La Source Ancienne Ounfo to host the First Annual Day of the Dead/Fed Gede Celebration and Ceremony on November 1st, 2017, continuing a tradition started by La Source Ancienne Ounfo 37 years ago. It has finally outgrown its original venue in Achade Meadows Peristil and will be expanded in the lobby of the New Orleans Healing Center. The festival will include a traditional All Souls/All Saints/Day of the Dead/Rara parade, a Day of the Dead market, Day of the Dead and Ancestral altars by local artists, a Ceremony to honor the Dead and the Gede spirits, a pot luck supper, a procession to feed the Dead, Prayers for the Dead from different traditions, praise names of the Dead, and the passing of flame in their honor.

In honoring the Dead, we embrace the meaning of our own lives and open space for the next generations.
