Before I Die ABQ Festival @ Variable
Oct 30 – Nov 4 all-day
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 second annual Before I Die ABQ Festival will start on October 30, which is Create a Great Funeral Day. The 2018 festival will include a daylong symposium on Saturday, November 3 and the post-Marigold Parade festival in Albuquerque’s South Valley on Sunday, November 4. Sign up for our mailing list to be kept apprised of developments!

The inaugural Before I Die ABQ Festival took place over six days from Friday, October 20, 2017 to Wednesday, October 25, 2017 at multiple locations and venues around Albuquerque, New Mexico. Six hundred participants attended multiple upbeat activities to openly think about, talk about and do something about our inevitable mortality. Sponsors can connect to hundreds of baby boomers through this unique festival!
