Muertitos Fest

When: Fri., Nov. 2, 6-10:30 p.m. and Sat., Nov. 3, 12-4 p.m. 2018

Promising “one of San Antonio’s most comprehensive Día de los Muertos celebrations,” creative youth-development nonprofit SAY Sí’s Muertitos Fest adds “educational context” to the holiday via a student art showcase, ofrendas, folk-art workshops, artisan vendors and cultural performances. Adopting a theme of “Sin Fronteras (Without Borders)” as a means to highlight “the vibrant indigenous cultures of Mexico and the origins of this significant celebration,” this year’s fest kicks off with a First Friday reception complete with a procession, food booths and a kid-friendly costume contest, and wraps up Saturday with a Family Day featuring face-painting, crafty workshops, music and performances.
