Welcome

Even though humans have a 100% mortality rate, less than 30% of us make any end-of-life plans. What will get adults to discuss and plan for their eventual demise? Put some “fun” in funeral planning to get people to discuss this serious topic.

The inaugural “Before I Die” ABQ festival will take place over six days from Friday, October 20, 2017 to Wednesday, October 25, 2017 at multiple locations and venues around Albuquerque, New Mexico. The festival offers multiple upbeat activities for people to openly think about, talk about and do something about our mortality. See the map below for all locations and events.

Events include movies, an art show, panel discussions, Death Café conversations, field trips to cemeteries, the Office of the Medical Investigator and haunted buildings, yoga and meditation classes, and parties.
