EXPLORIUM and Dia de Los Muertos Postponed

Corazón Healdsburg and the City have decided it is not possible to safely put on the planned Día de los Muertos event on Sunday, October 27. In addition, the City of Healdsburg has also decided to postpone its EXPLORIUM park/arts master planning event scheduled for Saturday, October 26.

The ongoing fire incident directly to the north of Healdsburg, combined with the anticipated high wind events and possible power shutdowns that are expected to take place beginning Saturday evening and continuing through Monday are not conditions that can support safe and successful events for our community.

The City of Healdsburg, Corazón Healdsburg, and the American Red Cross are collaborating on the operation of an active evacuation shelter and we are redirecting our energies to supporting residents of Northern Sonoma County during this event. Please follow the City of Healdsburg’s web page or Corazón Facebook page at for any updates regarding rescheduling the event in the future.

Thank you for your understanding and support – stay safe and look out for each other.


EXPLORIUM and Dia de Los Muertos Events Pospuesto

Corazón Healdsburg y la ciudad de Healdsburg han decidió que no es seguro continuar con el evento del Dia de los Muertos este Domingo, octubre 27 en la plaza de Healdsburg. También, la ciudad de Healdsburg ha decidió postponer su evento de EXPLORIUM park and arts master planning de este sábado octubre 26.

Los continuos incendios localizados directamente en el norte de Healdsburg en combinación de los altos vientos y posibles apagones de electricidad que están anticipados de suceder empezando el sábado en la tarte cual continuaran asta el lunes no son condiciones que apoyan la seguridad para nuestros eventos y para nuestra comunidad.

La ciudad de Healdsburg, Corazón Healdsburg y American Red Cross están colaborando en el proceso de evacuación y refugio a nuestros residentes del norte del condado de Sonoma durante este evento de desastre. Por favor de ir a la pagina de la ciudad de Healdsburg ( oh la pagina de Facebook de Corazón en para detalles sobre posibles eventos en el futuro que reunirán a nuestra comunidad.

Gracias por entender y por todo su apoyo – manténganse sanos y hay que cuidar uno por el otro.
