About this Death Cafe

This Death Cafe is taking place as part of the one-day Before I Die Bakersfield Festival. With a 100% chance of mortality, the Bakersfield Before I Die Festival fosters reflection about how we address death and dying. By providing space and opportunities to openly discuss end-of-life issues, we can learn and improve the outcome of the actions we take to prepare for our mortality. All Festival events are free and open to the public.
