Día de los Muertos

Come and celebrate el Día de los Muertos with art, ballet folklórico and more! This year the California Center for the Arts, Escondido celebrates our 22nd annual Festival. It is going to be better than ever. As always, attendees will be able to create altars to remember lost loved ones in a special area created by artist Eloy Tarcisio. For the children, we will have face painting, arts and crafts, and more. Food and handmade goods will be available for purchase.
This year’s festival includes a live performance in the Concert Hall by Selena Tribute Band Como la Flor. Don’t forget to stop by an altar to Selena created by artist Daniel Martinez that will be on display at the Center until November 17, 2017. Participate in our Selena Singing Contest!
We also have events from November 2 through 4 for you to celebrate. On November 2, paint a master copy of Diego Rivera’s The Flower Seller. Then on November 3, celebrate the 20th anniversary of the iconic film Selena. Finally, on November 4, experience the history of Mexico on stage with Folklor.
The festival begins at 6:00 pm and is free and open to the public. Altar space will not be available until 6:00 pm, but early arrival is strongly recommended. Guests will not need a ticket to enjoy the festival.
