The Dia de los Muertos Phx Festival is interactive, multi-generational, and participatory. Free and open to the public. Families are welcomed. The festival aims to instill a sense of history, pride and knowledge about our multicultural roots to the community at large.
Presented by Cultural Coalition, the festival features hundreds of masked entertainers with performances in music, dance and theater to honor our ancestors and celebrate our heritage and traditions. A gathering of artists and families. Food available to purchase. Our creative modern adaptations of ancient customs such as La Mascarada, La Visit, The Flight of Quetzalcoatl, and Las Coronas, promote our multicultural heritage while preserving our traditions.
The 6th Annual Dia de Los Muertos Phx Festival will take place on Sunday, October 29, 2017 from 12 noon to 6pm at Steele Indian School Park (on 3rd Street and Indian School Rd) in Phoenix, AZ. The Artists Mercado features some of Arizona's best local artists. There will also be food booths, kids arts activities and of course, the traditional Candlelight Procesión at 5:20 pm. We also provide a Community Altar. Bring a picture (no originals) or memento to place on it. It is a memorable community event!
