OU’s annual Day of the Dead festival is canceled for this fall.

The festival, which has been held every October or November for the past seven years, was postponed until next year for financial reasons. The festival is usually organized by the Hispanic American Student Association, said Diana Martinez, graduate assistant for Latino Programs and Service in Student Life, in an email.

For those who still want to celebrate the Day of the Dead, an event with Latin American artwork and craft projects will be held in the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art from 1–4 p.m. Nov. 2.

The Day of the Dead festival will be back next year, Martinez said.
