La Gritería Kit

About This Project

La Gritería is a Nicaraguan tradition that celebrates la Virgen de Concepción. In Miami, communities arrange booths with shrines in which crowds will come to sing to the Virgin. This kit is meant to equip those unfamiliar with this Nicaraguan celebration with some basic tools to join in on the celebration, such as a prayer/song book, votive candles, a rosary, matracas, and a bag for collecting goodies from La Gritería.
