On November 5 – 7, 2015, SAY Sí will present its 9th annual Muertitos Fest, a 3-day family-focused Día de los Muertos festival which celebrates the tradition that ties our city to Mexico and commemorates the rich Mexican-American culture of San Antonio.
Muertitos Fest, one of San Antonio’s most comprehensive Día de los Muertos celebrations, provides an educational context to this important holiday, with three days of unique cultural happenings including: an exhibition of student folk art and local artist’s Kathy Sosa and Veronica Prida new work, a notable folk art exhibit including trees of life, altars to honor the departed, family art workshops, food booths, artisan stalls and live cultural performances.
With the theme, “Tree of Life – Storytelling & Rituals,” all artwork, installations and performances will focus on the art of ritual as a means of sharing family history and tradition.
