Día de los Muertos San Antonio
Día de los Muertos San Antonio, the largest and most unique celebration of Day of the Dead in Texas, expands out of La Villita into Hemisfair. The free, two-day, family-friendly event — popularly known as “Muertos Fest” — blends traditional Day of the Dead art and culture with a curated line-up of alt-Latino music, old-school conjunto legends, and the stylings of local bands that have created the unique San Antonio sound. USA Today hails the event as “one of 10 great Day of the Dead celebrations” in the world. The heart of Día de los Muertos San Antonio remains the exhibition of altars lining the streets and walkways of the event. Families, school groups, and artists create beautiful, genuine and emotionally moving altars, expressions that can be found nowhere else. Other activities include a dance, drum and puppet procession; multiple stages of entertainment; workshops; a children’s area and an art market with over 40 vendors selling handcrafted Day of the Dead inspired goods.
