Continuing its 40-year tradition of outstanding fiestas and community events, Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village’s Dia de los Muertos Celebration or Day of the Dead is a winner. If you haven’t been, it’s a must do! This year’s mesmerizing cultural ritual from Mexico and the Southwest gives us a glimpse of how the passing of loved ones is viewed, celebrated and honored by people from neighboring countries. Dia de los Muertos at Tlaquepaque invites the public to take part in this centuries-old observance.
There are wonderful opportunities to experience Dia de los Muertos. The first is unique to Tlaquepaque, and back for the second year: the Marigold Mural Project, running from October 29 to November 2nd. Residents and visitors alike are invited to express themselves in paint and memorialize loved ones on a huge 26-foot long mural. Painting will take place from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm daily. Last year’s moving mural of the same size will also be on display. Then on the weekend of November 1st and 2nd, from 4:00 to 8:00 pm, the stage is set for Dia de los Muertos, a joyful time of remembering and community celebration. Tlaquepaque, fully decked out, resounds with fantastic musical entertainment and fire dancing, while costumed wandering gypsies and delicious traditional food get everyone in the spirit. Read More→
