New Orleans, LA

The end of October and beginning of November marks an important time for many in Latin America. It marks the observance of Día de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead. This year Tulane University’s Stone Center for Latin American Studies and The Southern Food & Beverage Museum celebrate Día de los Muertos with food.

The annual Day of the Dead educator workshop focuses on the arts, culture, and history of the tradition. We share books and activities that can be used at the K-12 level to teach about this tradition. Join us this year as we pay particular attention to food for the ancestors from Mexico, Guatemala, Peru and New Orleans. All K-12 level educators are invited to join us for an evening of learning, crafting, and eating!

Registration is now open!
Registration ($15) includes dinner, curricular resources, a food activity you can use in your classroom, a film, and a certificate to be used to receive Continuing Education Units.

The Southern Food & Beverage Museum is a nonprofit living history organization dedicated to the discovery, understanding and celebration of the food, drink and the related culture of the South. While based in New Orleans, the Museum examines and celebrates all the cultures that have come together through the centuries to create the South’s unique culinary heritage. SoFAB also hosts special exhibits, demonstrations, lectures and tastings that showcase the food and drink of the South.

Located inside the Southern Food & Beverage Museum (and included in your admission!) is The Museum of the American Cocktail’s New Orleans Collection and La Galerie de l’Absinthe. Be sure to check our program calendar to see what we’ll be offering during your visit in the Rouses Culinary Innovation Center by Jenn-Air.
