2019 Fruitvale Día de Los Muertos Festival

2019 Fruitvale Día de Los Muertos FestivalThe Fruitvale Día de Los Muertos Annual Festival is a free, outdoor festival that brings over 80,000 people to this vibrant, culturally-rich neighborhood to enjoy world-class live music, family-friendly games, rides and activities, traditional Latin American artisans, and the stunning altar artistic installations created by community members paying homage to los Muertos. The Día de los Muertos Festival was inducted into the U.S. Library of Congress by Congresswoman Barbara Lee as a “Local Legacy.”

The theme for this year is Los Ausentes (The Absent) paying respect to those who are no longer with us, whether they are loved ones who have passed away, or members of this very community who have been displaced due to deportation, gentrification, or incarceration. For every loved one who has passed into the afterlife… For every family member who is hopelessly waiting across an ocean or border fence… For every person missing someone behind bars… Join the community to pay tribute and celebrate Los Ausentes.

Saturday, November 2nd from 10 AM  to 5 PM
International Blvd, between Fruitvale & 40th Avenues in Oakland
