About Dia de los Muertos Festival, Corpus Christi
Now in our 15th year, the Dia de los Muertos Festival has become one of Corpus Christi’s most popular events. It has been nationally recognized as a top Dia de los Muertos Celebration in the US / Texas and voted Best Festival in The Bend Magazine’s Locals List six years running (2016-2021).
A national holiday in Mexico, Dia de los Muertos is a time when deceased friends and family members are remembered, honored and celebrated. It is a poignant time, both solemn and joyous, with colorful customs, pageantry, and whimsy despite the sobering subject. Our festival pays tribute to this tradition.
As Corpus Christi’s most anticipated event of the fall, the Dia de los Muertos Festival has brought life, music and culture into the downtown community since 2008. The festival’s goals are to celebrate and honor the rich cultural heritage of Mexico and South Texas, unite our community and promote our city.
The Dia de los Muertos Festival is organized by K Space Contemporary and Electra Art - Axis Tattoo.
The Dia de los Muertos Festival is the primary fundraiser for operating funds for K Space Contemporary, a 501c3 non-profit arts organization.
