A seasonal favorite that consistently brings all walks to the picturesque grounds of La Villita, Muertos Fest celebrates Día de los Muertos wit
h near-unrivaled fanfare.
In addition to what many consider the main event — a high-stakes competition between elaborate, artist-created ofrendas honoring family members, friends, pets, pop culture icons and plenty in between — Muertos Fest packs in an eclectic lineup of live music, poetry readings, artisan vendors, face painting, kid-friendly activities and a lively drum and puppet procession.
Promising highlights from the sixth annual outing include performances by Kansas City-based Making Movies, Alamo City supergroup Las Tesoros de San Antonio, genre-blending singer-songwriter Azul Barrientos, the Guadalupe Dance Company and Mariachi Nuevo Jalisco.
Free, 10am-11pm Saturday October 28, noon-10pm Sunday October 29, La Villita, 418 Villita St., (210) 207-8614, muertosfest.com.
