Now in its 22nd year, The Unity Council Día de Los Muertos Festival is a free, outdoor festival that brings over 60,000 people to the vibrant, culturally-rich Fruitvale 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. Families across California join us to experience live music, Ballet Folklorico, Aztec dancers and to shop at the local artisan craft stands. The Día de los Muertos Festival was inducted into the U.S. Library of Congress by Congresswoman Barbara Lee as a “Local Legacy.”
Vendor applications and Altar applications are now OPEN!
This event is supported by the Oakland City Council and funded by the City of Oakland's Cultural Funding Program.
