This year’s theme is Healing Hearts.
The Unity Council Día de Los Muertos Annual Festival is a free, outdoor festival that brings over 100,000 people to the vibrant, culturally-rich Fruitvale neighborhood to enjoy world-class live music, family-friendly games, rides and activities, traditional Latin American artisans, and the stunning altar artistic installations created by community members paying homage to los Muertos.
Families across California join to experience live music, Ballet Folklorico, Aztec dancers and to shop at the local artisan craft stands.
The Día de los Muertos Festival was inducted into the U.S. Library of Congress by Congresswoman Barbara Lee as a “Local Legacy.”
In keeping with the theme of healing, rapid Covid Tests and Vaccines will be available at the 2021 festival.
The Fruitvale District in Oakland, a predominately Latinx area, is one of the three zip codes hardest hit by the Covid-19 pandemic in Alameda County. This year more than ever before, it’s critical to create a space for grieving Latinx communities to practice indigenous rituals to heal from pandemic losses.
