about the Festival


Artelexia is excited to be back as Host of North park's Day of the Dead festival for the second year in a row!

With the great success of last year's first ever Day of the Dead Festival in North Park (thanks to YOU!), we want to invite everyone in the city to come celebrate and learn more about this vibrant Mexican holiday as we cherish the opportunity to keep Bringing Mexico to You!

Declared a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by the UNESCO in 2003, its significance in preserving the heritage of the Mexican people is important in also conserving cultural diversity world-wide. Because of this, we at Artelexia are honored to celebrate Día de Muertos as we feel closer to our ancestors who instilled in us the pride to be of Mexican descent.

A Magical Celebration!

To add to the fun of this Magical Celebration in North Park, we’ll have:

  • sugar skull decorating

  • face painting

  • a community altar

  • mezcal & tequila tasting

  • a cerveza cantina

  • food trucks

  • music

... all sure to make our ancestors happy to return and celebrate with us!



With your support we can make sure this important cultural tradition continues!
