October in Corpus Christi Means the Dia de los Muertos Street Festival – Be There!

The 2019 Corpus Christi Dia de Los Muertos Festival will be held on Saturday, November 2nd! Now, in our 12th year, the Dia de los Muertos Festival has become one of Corpus Christi’s most popular events. It has been nationally recognized in multiple lists as a top Dia de los Muertos Celebration in Texas and the U.S. and voted Best Festival in The Bend Magazine’s Locals List four years running.

The Dia de Los Muertos Festival is one of the most exciting events in Corpus Christi, thanks to all there is to see and do. Free concerts by Latin-influenced musicians and up-and-coming Texas bands, as well as cultural performances, are held on three stages. Entertainment includes Native American, Folklorico, and contemporary dance, Mariachis, and bands that play Cumbia, Tejano, Conjunto, Salsa, Latin Pop and Rock. Our music headliner is Kings del Wepa from Coahuila, Mexico.

A crowd favorite at the festival is the Hecho-a-Mano Arts and Crafts Expo. Browse the more than 85 vendors selling arts and crafts, jewelry, and other handmade items, or have your face painted in classic Dia de los Muertos style. Art students from Texas A&M Corpus Christi will perform sculpture and printmaking demonstrations and serve as puppet masters for our famous over-sized Calaveras.

The Kids Corner has lots of activities to keep the children busy, from the rock-climbing wall, crafts, and games, to the community mural painting. An important part of the day for most festival-goers is stopping by the Walk of Remembrance altar display at The Ritz. Here, you’ll find moving ofrendas created by children, families, organizations, and other members of the community to honor departed family members, soldiers, celebrities, community leaders, and others.

Dia de los Muertos Street Festival is one of our region’s most distinctive festivals, and you don’t want to miss it! For more information, visit www.diadelosmuertoscc.com.

Sure, at Autumn Park Apartments in Victoria, Texas, you’ll find all the on-site amenities and services you desire, but we know your lifestyle demands more than perks that are close-to-home. By informing you of this upcoming event, we hope to inspire you to interact with your neighbors on a deeper level and just have an all-around good time.
