The Next Death Cafe is Moving Outdoors!

With the rising numbers of cases of COVID-19 due to the Delta virus variant, in-person Death Cafe events are moving from Manzano Del Sol, a retirement community, outdoors to Historic Fairview Cemetery. How appropriate to discuss death among the tombstones.

The ABQ Death Cafe offers a relaxed, confidential and safe setting to discuss death, drink tea (or your favorite beverage) and eat delicious cake or cookies. We also provide options for those avoiding gluten and added sugar. To RSVP for any of the Death Cafe events, join the ABQ Death Cafe Meetup Group here.

This Sunday, August 29, the Albuquerque Death Cafe will take place at Historic Fairview Cemetery, located at 700 Yale Blvd. SE. Please bring a folding chair to sit upon. Drinks and snacks will be provided. We will set up in the shade near the Galles mausoleum. If it rains, we will cut the Death Cafe conversation short.
