Día de Muertos 2023
Wednesday, November 1 @ 4:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Join us in honoring our antepasados and conserving the traditions of our Mexican heritage and the Westside, at our annual Día de Muertos celebration
at the Rinconcito de Esperanza (816 S. Colorado, San Antonio, TX 78207).
Admission is free.
There will be displays of community altars/ofrendas, live music, food, and much more! The evening will highlight readings of literary ofrendas to remember our dead, and calavera poems that poke fun at the living and their untimely encounters with La Muerte or La Catrina. We will also have a procession through the neighborhood, so please join us! Folks are welcome to dress up and bring an instrument or noise maker for the procession.
