Día de los Muertos Celebration

When: Thu., Nov. 1, 3-11:30 p.m. 2018

A “politically progressive, outspoken and unwavering force for justice in San Antonio” since 1987, the Esperanza Peace and Justice Center boasts a long and fruitful history in the Alamo City, crusading for everything from historical preservation to transgender rights. Inviting folks to celebrate “dearly departed familia, friends and ancestors,” the nonprofit’s take on Día de los Muertos combines altar displays with a costumed procession, readings of literary ofrendas and calavera poems, local vendors including the MujerArtes clay cooperative, and live music by soul siren Alyson Alonzo, singer-songwriter/guitarist Azul Barrientos and Latin orchestra Volcán — not to mention pán de muerto, tamales and hot chocolate.
