Overview

This November 2-3, 2018 SAY Sí presents its FREE Muertitos Fest, a Día de los Muertos festival celebrating the tradition that ties our city to Mexico and commemorates the rich Mexican-American culture of San Antonio. Día de los Muertos, originating in Mexico, is a time when families and communities remember those dearly departed and honor the continuity of life. Every year, SAY Sí curates one of San Antonio’s most comprehensive Día de los Muertos celebrations, providing educational context to the important holiday with two days of unique cultural happenings including: a multidisciplinary showcase of student art, altars to honor the departed, family folk art workshops, food booths, an artisan mercado as well as live cultural performances highlighting local dancers, musicians and entertainers. With the theme, Sin Fronteras (Without Borders), this year’s festivities will focus on the vibrant indigenous cultures of Mexico and the origins of this significant celebration.
