2019 Fruitvale Dia De Los Muertos Festival
Saturday, November 2, 2019 | 10 am to 5 pm
Fruitvale Transit Village, E. 12th St. at 33rd Ave. Oakland
The Unity Council Día de Los Muertos Annual Festival is a free, outdoor festival that brings over 100,000 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.
The theme for this year is Los Ausentes (The Absent) paying respect to 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.
