The Day of the Dead inspired festival combines music, culture, tradition, food and art into a mezcla that tastes as good if not better than your abuela’s capirotada. They look forward to hanging with you to rock the dead, rattle your bones and shake the soul.
Experience the signature Calavera Camp for kids hosted by KQED. Walk through the Artist Colony filled with over thirty five contemporary and traditional artists who have masterfully captured the spirit of Día De Los Muertos.
You don’t want to miss the signature altars that the low and slow amigos at Blvd Bombs create every year from the back of their trunks; you thought their cars were a work of art, wait until you see the altars they create.
On the main stage, enjoy music that will surely put you into the muerto mood, cheer on your favorite Lucha Libre match, or watch in awe of local Chicano youth artists paint murals live at the festival, all while having home cooked authentic Comida Mexicana (no food trucks here, we are old school con safos).
Relax in the signature beer garden with a cold chela, brought to you by our favorite import Modelo.
