Muertos Fest: 9th Annual Día de los Muertos Celebration at Hemisfair
Oct 23 - Oct 24| Free
The 9th Annual Día de los Muertos at Hemisfair returns this Fall to downtown San Antonio for an expanded, in-person outdoor gathering on Saturday, October 23, and Sunday, October 24.
Recognized by National Geographic as one of America’s Top 7 Fall Festivals, Día de los Muertos brings back its unique mix of community altars, live music, art vendors and workshops in a free, family-friendly, two-day event. Popularly knows at Muertos Fest, this beloved San Antonio event is one of the largest Day of the Dead celebrations in the United States.
Día de los Muertos combines a celebration of life with a remembrance of loss. As in years past, at the heart of Muertos Fest are the specially built community altars, or ofrendas, honoring those who have passed on. This central element of Día de los Muertos at Hemisfair continues in 2021 with an awareness of the past year, combined with an assurance of a positive future.
