Due to the continuing rise of COVID-19 cases, the street festival portion of the 2021 Dia De Los Muertos Celebration has been cancelled. The safety of the general public, artisans and vendors, festival volunteers, performers and every individual involved in the festival remains the prominent factor in the committee decision. This is the second year the street festival has been cancelled due to the ongoing global pandemic.

General Information about the Dia de los Muertos Festival
Now in our 14th year, the Dia de los Muertos Festival has become one of Corpus Christi’s most popular events. It has been nationally recognized as a top Dia de los Muertos Celebration in the US / Texas, and voted Best Festival in The Bend Magazine’s Locals List six years running (2016-2021).
A national holiday in Mexico, Dia de los Muertos is a time when deceased friends and family members are remembered, honored and celebrated. It is a poignant time, both solemn and joyous, with colorful customs, 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, a made-by-hand Arts and Crafts Expo, fine art exhibitions and demonstrations, interactive artworks and activities. Educational components include workshops, K-12 piñata contest, Kids Corner with crafts, activities and performances for children, and a community altar display where visitors may pay homage to loved ones.
Thousands of residents and tourists 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 500 students under 18 are involved in the Extravagancia de Piñatas, altar display, Youth Art Exhibition, and performances, while approximately 200 college students exhibit art and design, demonstrate art techniques, and perform dance and music 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!
