Before I Die NM Festival
Before I Die festivals are part of a growing social movement to foster reflection about mortality. These festivals have drawn thousands to events in Cardiff, Wales (UK), York (UK), Indianapolis, IN, and Louisville, KY. Before I Die New Mexico was the first such festival in the United States west of the Mississippi. The fifth annual Before I Die New Mexico Festival will include online and in-person events, depending on pandemic conditions. Events for 2021 will be scheduled from October 30 (Create a Great Funeral Day) to November 2 (All Souls Day). As in years past, the Before I Die New Mexico Festival will include panel discussions and speakers related to end-of-life issues, Death Cafe discussions, and much more. Althea Halchuck will make a presentation on FEN’s surrogate consulting service and manage an exhibit booth featuring FEN’s mission and services.
