The 2018 Corpus Christi Dia de Los Muertos Festival will be held October 27th, 3pm to midnight. Now in our 11th year, the Dia de los Muertos Festival has become one of Corpus Christi’s most popular events. It has been listed as in Top 10 Dia de los Muertos Celebrations in the US by MSNBC, listed in the Caller Times Best of the Best (2016), and voted Best Festival in The Bend Magazine’s Locals List (2016, 2017, 2018).
A national holiday in Mexico, Dia de los Muertos is a holiday when deceased friends and family members are remembered, honored and celebrated. It is a poignant time, both solemn and joyous, with colorful traditions, pageantry, and whimsy despite the sobering subject. Our festival pays tribute to this tradition.
The Dia de los Muertos Festival offers live music and dance (traditional and contemporary), made-by-hand arts and crafts expo, fine art exhibition and demonstrations, interactive artworks and activities, and this year, we are adding a Lucha Libre ring. Educational components include workshops, K-12 pinata contest, a Kids Corner with crafts and activities, and a community altar display where visitors may pay homage to a loved one of their own.
Residents of and tourists to the Coastal Bend of all ages, ethnicities and economic levels enjoy the festival each year. Participants range from children as young as three years old to vendors over 70. Over 450 students under 18 are involved in the Extravagancia de Pinatas, altar display and performances, and approximately 200 college students exhibit art and design, demonstrate art techniques, perform dance, music and theatrical skits and provide production support on our stages.
The Dia de los Muertos Festival is designed to attract locals and tourists to downtown Corpus Christi, to educate and unite our community, and to celebrate the rich cultural heritage of Mexico and South Texas. We invite all to be a part of this amazing cultural festival!
