Dia De Los Muertos - Lake Elsinore Oct. 27, 2018

In keeping with its mission of integrating arts and culture on Main Street, the nonprofit artists’ cooperative STUDIO 395, in a partnership with the city of Lake Elsinore, will stage its annual Dia de Los Muertos celebration from 1 pm to 6 pm, Saturday, Oct. 27.

“It’s definitely one of our signature events,” STUDIO 395 co-founder Grace Sandlin said. “We want to attract more foot traffic downtown, involve more downtown residents, and get the artists involved.”

Sandlin now serves as the Lake Elsinore Downtown Merchants Association’s board president, which illustrates the extent to which the arts group has become a player on Main Street.  The DMA is a coalition of concerns promoting commerce in the Lake Elsinore Downtown Historical District.

When STUDIO 395 initiated a Dia de Los Muertos fiesta in the group’s early years, it was a relatively modest affair occupying a few street corners.  The holiday, on which families pay tribute to deceased relatives, has grown widely in the U.S. in areas populated by Mexican descendants.

The success of STUDIO 395’s early Dia de Los Muertos efforts led the city to get involved as co-sponsor. The event burgeoned in offerings and popularity, said organizer Rebecca Esquibel, owner of La Rebelde Winery and CEO of STUDIO 395.

“I think the value is for it to be a bridge to allow the local community to understand some things about the Hispanic community and their focus on family,” Esquibel said. “That’s the whole purpose: to give an opportunity to the community to come together at a positive and entertaining event.”

A few thousand people are expected to attend the gathering, which will feature up to 50 vendors providing food, beverages, arts and crafts, and recreational activities. Live music and dance will occur throughout.  Many features will harmonize with the party’s theme, such as altars, sugar skulls, mariachis and Ballet Folklorico.

The event will be staged at City Park on Main between Limited and Library streets. Sections of Main and the side streets will be shut down to accommodate festivities.

An innovative addition orchestrated by the city will be a Go Human project, in which bicycles paths will be established around City Park on Main and Limited. The goal is to encourage visitors to use their bikes as transport to and from the happening.

The Southern California Association of Governments is funding the project, which will include a bicycle parade, a bike valet parking area, and vendors promoting non-motorized transportation.

Aside from vendor wares and food, the gala admittance and entertainment is free of charge.  The group also tries to keep the vendors to those that sell handmade or theme related items only. 

“We do this event for the cultural and artistic experience it brings to the local residents,” Esquibel said. “This is not a fundraiser. It’s a community event that we want to keep free to access.”

Information on STUDIO 395 and its events is available at The Lake Elsinore Downtown Merchants Association posts updates on its Facebook page.

If you are currently involved in a nonprofit, or thinking of creating one this is a valuable way to spend the day.  The panelist for this workshop where chosen for their depth of knowledge and years of experience contributing to successes and dealing with the failed opportunities. This will be a unique introduction and open invitation.

Quote from: The Nonprofit Board - Answer Book - 3rd Edition,
Nonprofit organizations are an essential part of our society.  They struggle to reduce poverty and bring and end to homelessness.  They strive to build safe places to learn and play, create inspiring art and music, and protect our natural resources.  With more than 1.7 million 501 (c) organizations spending well over $1 trillion annually, the size and influence of the nonprofit sector make it imperative that nonprofit boards operate ethically, legally, and to their fullest potential.  In challenging economic times, the imperative is even greater, as boards must be prepared to ask tough questions and make difficult decisions.
