The Dia de los Muertos Phx Festival is an interactive, multi-generational, and participatory cultural immersion event blending traditional Mexican experiences with a twist of Southwestern flavor. The festival aims to instill a sense of history, pride and knowledge about our multicultural roots to the community at large through culturally relevant programming and activities. Presented by Cultural Coalition, the festival takes disappearing folk traditions and reinterprets them, creating new and innovative ways to address important social issues, while encouraging collaborations between local institutions and community artists.
The festival features traditional music and dance by local performers, children’s activities, folk arts and crafts, ethnic food, community altar, and a candle light procession.
Desert Dance Theatre’s Lisa Chow and Step Raptis will portray Los Katrines, entertaining the crowd and to help gather audience members in participating in Los Katrines Contest at 3:15pm.
Other members of Desert Dance Theatre as Calacotes will help gather people to participate in the final procession and ceremony.
Events may be viewed in these formats: list, week, day, map, photo and month.
