This November 1-2, 2019 SAY Sí presents its FREE Muertitos Fest, a Día de los Muertos festival celebrating the tradition that ties our city to Mexico and commemorates the rich Mexican-American culture of San Antonio.

Every year, SAY Sí curates one of San Antonio’s most comprehensive Día de los Muertos celebrations, providing educational context to the important holiday with two days of unique cultural happenings including:
– a multidisciplinary showcase of student art
– altars to honor the departed
– a community altar
– a youth & adult best-dressed contest (Friday only)
– family folk art workshops
– food booths
– an artisan mercado
– live cultural performances highlighting local dancers, musicians and entertainers
– and more!

This year’s theme, Mestizo, reflects the convergence of cultures and indigenous roots of our region. Traditionally referring to a person of combined European and Indigenous American descent, the term Mestizo has become more of a cultural term. Today, a vast majority of Spanish-speaking Latin Americans are considered mestizos regardless of their actual ancestry.
