26th Annual Día de los Muertos Festival

Join us at the Center to celebrate Día de los Muertos!

CCAE welcomes the community to celebrate in person the 26th Annual Día de los Muertos celebration. It’s an opportunity to gather together as a community to honor and remember our loved ones who are no longer with us. The Center will stay true to tradition and have altars outside the Museum for anyone to use, available on a first come, first served basis. Dance performances by the Aztec dance group Xinachtli and Tierra Caliente Academy of Arts will perform outside. Craft tables, an outdoor DJ and an artisan craft market will also be part of the festivities. The community participatory altars are based on the original 1995 site-specific art installation conceived and designed by artist Eloy Tarcisio titled Muerte de Todos.

Californian Tall Ship Adventure.

Jan 5 - Mar 31, 2022

The Maritime Museum of San Diego invites you to join us for Tall Ship adventure sailing! This is a four-hour adventure history sail aboard the schooner Californian.
The Californian is a replica of a gold rush era revenue cutter and the Official Tall Ship of the State of California.

Arrive early to take in your general admission visit to the entire fleet and exhibits, then set sail! 

Join the crew in sailing a traditionally rigged tall ship! Passengers will be invited to haul a line, man the helm and watch the crew as they scamper up and down the rigging to set and furl the sails. Listen as the Californian’s crew relates the history of sailing and exploration in San Diego, tales of whaling and sea otter trade, local sea battles, the art of ship’s gunnery, life at sea and more.
