Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos)

The Day of the Dead is celebrated around the world and goes back some 3,000 years with rituals honoring the dead, and are held as a cyclical view of the universe, seeing death as an integral, ever-present part of life.

Why Attend the Expo?

Learn, Grow and Prepare

Our expo schedule is full of courses ranging from: Exit Papers 101, Estate Planning, Family Support, Stages of Grief, and many more

Did you know that in the United States alone, more people are talking about dying and death than at any other time in history? And there are some of us searching for new ways to stay young while some of us want to know where the closest green burial grounds are located? Attendees will leave with actionable steps and the knowledge they need to plan their final celebration, as well as tools and connections for all the end-of-life needs for you or your family members. 

Don’t leave your final wishes a mystery. Enter the Expo and discover amazing tools and resources available to you, that perhaps, you didn’t even know existed. Check out the Bookstore and meet the authors at their book signing gigs. Talk with everyone, don’t miss a thing. You’ll meet doctors, nurses, ombudsmen, social workers, lawyers, scientists, physicists, psychoanalysts, psychiatrists, therapists, massage therapists, as well as healers, psychics, shamans, death midwives and death doulas, psychopomps and music thanatologists.

Unlimited workshops per day facilitated by the very best from Attorney’s specializing in Wills and Trusts, to Financial Planners and Estate Planners, Bankers, Brokers and Investors. Are you looking to downsize your living space? Perhaps thinking about moving into an Over 55 facility? Step into a workshop with Realtors and ask your questions and hear from the experts. Go to the CPR classes and get certified.

From Exit Papers 101, including, Choices of Directives and Other Critical Documents to Palliative Care, Hospice, At-Home Care and In-Home Funerals to the benefits of essential oils, CBD and Hallucinogens, YOU won’t want to miss this expo!

You want to be flown to the moon? Be buried at sea? Get lost in space? Not sure? Come to the Beautiful Dying Expo and get educated. Perhaps you’d like to get into a satin filled coffin and feel what its like while you’re alive. Maybe lay in a mushroom suit and feel the spores of mushrooms around you?

Check out the beautiful jewelry at the booths with designs from necklaces, lockets and diamonds made up of your loved one’s ashes.

We are here to help educate you, bring awareness to you and help empower you to navigate through life’s journey with the most up to date innovational tools and resources available today. We hope this expo will bring you clarity and a feeling of accomplishment to make good choices for yourself and your loved ones.
