Dia De Los Muertos 23rd Annual Festival

Date/Time

Nov 4, 2018
10:00 AM until 05:00 PM

Description


The Unity Council Día de Los Muertos Annual Festival is a free, outdoor festival that brings over 80,000 people to the vibrant, culturally-rich Fruitvale neighborhood to enjoy world-class live music, family-friendly games, rides and activities, traditional Latin American artisans, and the stunning altar artistic installations created by community members paying homage to los Muertos. Families across California join us to experience live music, Ballet Folklorico, Aztec dancers and to shop at the local artisan craft stands.


While the festival has deep ancestral roots, the current political climate begs the question of how we can use this platform to educate, inundate, and celebrate. In keeping with that line of thinking, The Unity Council and A2Z are proposing that the Fruitvale Dia De Los Muertos Festival, in 2018, adopt a theme that highlights the current plight of all Dreamers and Immigrants, while also serving to elevate the festival to the national stage.
