About Dia de los Muertos at Fiesta de Reyes
One of the most vibrant and loved events at Fiesta de Reyes, Dia de los Muertos annually celebrates those who are no longer with us. A long-standing Mexican tradition, Dia de los Muertos is celebrated on November 1st and 2nd each year and is an opportunity to remember our loved ones with honor in a lively, vibrant way.
This year, we’re taking the whole weekend before to kick off the celebration, starting on Saturday, October 28th. We’ll be celebrating in style with professional face painters on hand, art demonstrations, live entertainment, both traditional and contemporary altars on display, and a host of vibrant Catrinas holding court throughout Fiesta de Reyes and Old Town San Diego State Historic Park. This is a true celebration of life and a great experience for the whole family. All of Old Town San Diego State Historic Park will be alive with activities and demonstrations. To see the dramatic larger-than life displays in the growing collection at Fiesta de Reyes is a not to be missed opportunity.
