21st Annual Fruitvale Dia de los Muertos Festival

Sunday, October 30, 2016
10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Fruitvale Village, Oakland

The theme of this year’s festival is “Nuestras Raices: El Poder de la Comunidad.” Now in its 21st year, The Unity Council Día de los Muertos Festival is a free, outdoor festival that brings over 60,000 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. The Día de los Muertos Festival was inducted into the U.S. Library of Congress by Congresswoman Barbara Lee as a “Local Legacy”. For more information, please click here.
