Event Details

The All Souls Procession is one of the most important, radically inclusive and authentic public ceremonies in North America today.
The Procession had its beginnings in Tucson, Arizona in 1990, with a ceremonial performance piece created by local artist Susan Johnson. Johnson was grieving the passing of her father, and as an artist, she found solace in a creative, celebratory approach to memorializing him. Says Johnson, “From the beginning, it was different people’s ethnic groups, different cultures, but also it was all these different art forms put together.”
After that first year, many artists were inspired to continue, growing the Procession into its modern incarnation.
In 2006, MMOS was established as a non-profit to organize and produce the season.
Today we find ourselves hosting well over 150,000 participants on the streets of Downtown Tucson for the 1 1/2-mile-long human-powered Procession and ceremonial burning of The Urn.
