Celebrating the 25th Anniversary
Oakland Día de los Muertos Festival
For 25 years, the annual Oakland Día de los Muertos Festival has welcomed tens of thousands of visitors to the vibrant, culturally-rich Fruitvale neighborhood for a free, outdoor, family-friendly event taking place to commemorate the Mexican traditions around the Día de los Muertos. Festival attendees enjoy world-class live music, family-friendly games, rides and activities, traditional Latin American artisans, and the stunning altares created by community members paying homage to los Muertos.
2020 is a year like no other. While we are devastated that we cannot come together in person, we are excited to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of this incredible cultural event together online.
Watch a powerful video series, the Real Fruitvale, where we tell the story of Fruitvale as a place of creativity, resilience, and Black & Latinx unity.
Shop at our Muertos Mercadito, where you can support small vendors and pick up your favorite Dìa de los Muertos artesania; learn how to bring the traditional arts and crafts of Día into your home through our social media #DIYDia video series.
And order your 25th Anniversary yard sign featuring the art of Favianna Rodriguez to bring the festival home, wherever you live.
